A dental implant replaces one or more missing teeth to both restore the proper function of your mouth and significantly improve the aesthetics of your smile.
Typically made of titanium material, dental implants are anchored into your jaw line and later protected by a porcelain crown or a dental bridge. The titanium abutment is designed to take the place of your natural tooth root, allowing you to chew properly and mimic the appearance of a full set of pearly whites.
