Go With Dental Implants to Achieve Perfect Smile
Many new developments have been made in the field of cosmetic dentistry. Its seems that every year dentists get better at achieving a mouth of perfection. There are numerous procedures available now to help people who do not have an ideal smile. The only question is which one to go with.
Dental implants are one of the options and are viewed as one of the most advantageous kind on the market. While they can be quite costly they will last a long time without you having to do anything to them. In fact, properly maintained implants can last anywhere from 10-15 years without giving a person any problem, whatsoever.
What exactly are they? Dental implants are teeth made from titanium. They look and feel like real teeth. Titanium is chosen because of the positive properties it has. It is strong, resistant to corrosion, does not rust and is biologically compatible with human immune systems (other metals will get rejected by the body).
When titanium dental implants are installed in your mouth a process called osseo integration occurs. This involvedsbone cells growing into the depression of the surface of the implant, in effect bonding with it. Your jaw bone and your implant both integrate with one another and your implants become almost just like your real teeth. For this reason titanium implants, while very costly, are viewed as a very stable procedure.
If you are concerned about the cost of cosmetic surgery there are other less expensive dental implants you can get. It does not have to be titanium. Fibro integrated implants are another option. They are cheaper but are not as stable and do not last as long.
Think about it! Instead of messing around with braces or retainers you can install perfect looking teeth in your mouth that function and act as your real ones would. This procedure is how many stars in Hollywood achieve that perfect set of chompers we all admire.
Ah, but the cost. Be ready to pay a nice sum of money for these perfect teeth. You will have to save a while if you are not already wealthy to begin with. Dental insurance will not cover this procedure. Most plans to do not cover cosmetic procedures in the dental field.
One implant can cost you anywhere from $2,000 to over $8,000. If this is something you have been thinking about then start saving now. Many cosmetic dentists offer payment plans but you will still have to come up with a sizable down payment, many times half of the total amount. You will also have to pay for various administrative costs and for the preliminary diagnostic procedures.
Start the process by contacting a local cosmetic dentist in your area. If you want to go to a trusted one then ask your current family dentist if he or she has any recommendations. Make an initial appointment and get a free consultation. Should you be able to afford this procedure you will not regret you got it done. Now you have a smile that can literally light an entire room.
