What are dental implants?

Your dentist will work with you to ensure that these implants are a good fit for you as well as how to properly take care of them.

How are they fitted?

Sheen Dental Implants in Richmond are fitted in two stages. The first involves placing the implant at the jaw and allowing it considerable time to yield to the bone and heal. This implant is a small titanium screw that is placed into the gap left behind by the tooth you lost. A crown, a bridge or denture can then be built onto the implant to give the look of the natural smile. These teeth will look, act and feel like the tooth that you lost allowing you to have the confidence in your smile again.
