If you still have your teeth, but are not comfortable with them, these might be the best solution. Stunning porcelain veneers offer a relatively affordable approach to cosmetic adjustments – uneven color, size, or shape. These are very thin shells bonded to the front of the teeth. They enhance unsightly, but structurally sound teeth.
A dental implant is a tooth replacement that incorporates an artificial tooth PLUS an artificial root (usually biocompatible titanium). With local anesthesia, the artificial root is actually inserted into the jaw bone where it integrates with the bone tissue. There are three parts to a dental implant: the artificial root, the connecting abutment, and the final crown or denture.
A dental implant is often the most appropriate restoration as it offers beauty, strength, natural function, and protection from bone recession that often occurs at the site of a missing tooth.
Most Kelowna residents have heard of dentures: a plate holding artificial teeth that can be removed for cleaning. These are tailor-made and can contain varying numbers of teeth. Sometimes the entire set of upper and lower teeth have to be pulled and a denture created. Modern dentistry offers a myriad of custom dental implant-denture combinations to restore missing teeth.
