Dental Implants – Bellevue, WA
Enjoy Your Complete Smile Again
The loss of one or more natural teeth can result in consequences for not only a patient’s smile, but their quality of life too. At Bellevue Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we strongly believe that dental implants are the best method available today for turning back the clock and regaining dental structure that’s seamlessly attractive, highly functional, and built to last.
Unlike more traditional tooth replacement options, dental implants rebuild every part of the natural tooth – this includes the root that exists below the gum line, which is typically ignored. This root provides a durable foundation for the new “tooth” and helps it thrive without damaging the health of surrounding teeth.
Here in Bellevue, Dr. Preet will work with a trusted dental implant specialist to guide patients through every step of this transformative process smoothly. To schedule a first consultation, contact us today!
Are You Missing One Tooth?
When a single natural tooth is lost, Dr. Preet will design an all-ceramic, implant-retained dental crown to cover the placed implant. This is the best solution because of its conservative nature – the placement of the new crown won’t threaten the health of surrounding natural teeth or require their structure to be altered. The final result will be so indistinguishable that it’s likely you’ll forget which tooth isn’t original after some time has passed!
Are You Missing Multiple Teeth?
When there are multiple teeth that need to be replaced, their location throughout the mouth will influence Dr. Preet’s recommendation for restoration. For instance, if they are completely scattered, implant-retained crowns are the best option available. Alternatively, if they used to appear together in a row, our team can create an implant-retained bridge. Traditional dental bridges are anchored in place through the use of dental crowns, which cover natural teeth. However, an implant-retained version is securely held with two dental implants instead, which is a healthier and longer-lasting technique.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
There are several components to the dental implant process that incur their own cost, including:
- How many implants are needed
- How many dental restorations are needed
- What type of dental restoration the patient prefers (crown, bridge, etc)
- How many abutments (connectors between implants and restorations) are needed
- If periodontal therapy, bone grafting, or other procedures are necessary to prepare the surgical site
Dental Implant Restorations
After a local specialist inserts your dental implants into your jawbone and your abutments are attached, Dr. Preet will get to work on designing your restorations — the artificial teeth that will go on top of your implants. Her experience, state-of-the-art technology, and outstanding attention to detail enable her to create restorations that are functional, durable, and aesthetically pleasing. Once your restorations are in place, you might forget that you were ever missing any teeth in the first place!
Because of this, our team will need to see you for an initial dental implant consultation here in Bellevue, WA before an accurate price can be provided. We are happy to help patients make this procedure as affordable as possible using dental insurance benefits, payment plans, and more.
