Dental implants are the most effective option for those who are looking to replace one or more missing teeth. By replacing both the root and the crown of the missing tooth, a dental implant will restore beauty, function, stability, and strength to your smile. Dental implants are typically placed after a 3D scan and thorough evaluation.This innovative 3D technology provides all of the necessary information to properly place the right implant in the right position. Implants are placed in one visit and monitored over the course of several months to insure stabilization. When stable, the implant is indexed and your beautiful new implant restoration will be placed on your return visit. For individuals who suffer from poorly-fitting dentures, implants with special attachments for dentures can provide wonderful comfort and stability.
Depending on your individual needs, your implant restoration could be a:

We use both Zirconia and standard titanium implants. Our crowns and bridges are Zirconia or standard precious metal/porcelain restorations. We always include the patient in the planning stages to make sure that the right restoration will be chosen before your implant is placed. When in place, your complete dental implant will be a natural addition to your smile, restoring beauty, function, and health. As mentioned, Dr. Johnson will use a state-of-the-art 3D imaging system to accurately plan the size, length, and where the implant should go.

For conventional treatment of weak or broken teeth, crowns are recommended. In non esthetic zones a variety of biocompatible materials are available. When appearance is key, Zirconia crowns provide superior durability and aesthetics. These crowns are so beautifully crafted that they can even fool the most discriminating eye.
Our tooth-colored fillings are free from metal and mercury. New innovations in chemistry (e.g. nano-technology) have provided beautiful, durable dental composites that are sure to please the eye and within the scope of use, provide lasting service. Like all of our restorations, the materials used are biologically compatible to keep you safe and healthy.
