Our Austin & Sunset Valley Implant Dentistry
Dental implants are the ideal restoration for replacing one or more missing teeth. At the Sunset Valley dental practice of Dr. Elie El Hage, we help patients to restore their smiles through the placement and restoration of aesthetic and durable dental implants. Excel Dental provides implant-supported restorations for patients throughout Oak Hill, Westgate, South Lamar, and the neighboring communities throughout Austin.
Why Dental Implants?
These restorations are not only optimal as aesthetic dental prosthetics, but create long term stability for your smile. Implant posts are made using biocompatible materials like titanium, allowing them to be incorporated into the jaw.
Once the placement site is fully healed, implants act as artificial roots for your restorations, promoting long term jaw stability and avoiding the resorption that occurs as a result of missing teeth. This support will not only make regular jaw function easier, but prevents the aged, sunken facial appearance that results from missing teeth. Implant supported restorations also minimize need to use neighboring teeth as support.
Types of Implant Restorations
At Excel Dental, we offer patients the ability to restore one or more teeth through different kinds of implant supported restorations. These restorations include:
Single-Tooth Implants: These implants are supported by individual implants, and can be cleaned through regular brushing and flossing.
Implant-Retained Bridges: For patients who are missing several neighboring teeth, implant-supported bridges allow teeth to be restored without having to shape healthy teeth to place crowns that support the bridge.
Implant-Supported Dentures: Dentures supported by implants function similarly to traditional dentures, and are held in the mouth using clasp abutments. These abutments attach to the implants in your jaw, and allow you to avoid shifting dentures, while maintaining the easy-to-clean appeal of traditional removable dentures.
Combining Aesthetics and Stability
In addition to their long term benefits, the dental implants we place allow patients restore the natural appeal and bite function of their smile. Our Sunset Valley implant dentist provides patients with implant restorations made using durable ceramic materials such as dental porcelain and zirconia.
These materials can be matched to the shade of your natural teeth, making your restoration a seamless addition to your smile. In order to further mimic the semi-translucence of natural teeth, our office also offers abutments made of zirconia. Porcelain and zirconia restorations are not only able to compliment your neighboring teeth, but are durable enough to replace teeth in the front and rear of the mouth.
