Dental Implants = Beautiful Smiles
Dental implants offer a beautiful and functional solution for missing teeth! Whether you’ve lost teeth because of illness, heredity, or injury, dental implants can be a great option – and in most cases, a much better choice than traditional dentures or bridges.
We’re pleased to offer affordable dental implants, starting at a cost of just $2,495 for a single implant!
Dental implants are artificial substitutes for natural tooth roots. The lightweight posts are surgically placed in the gums or in your jawbone, and replacement teeth (crowns or even dentures) are attached to them.
The primary types of dental implants are:
- single tooth implants
- multiple teeth implants
- full mouth restoration with implants
- dentures supported by implants
Dental implants can provide support for improved appearance, speech, comfort, and chewing ability. They look and function as beautifully as your natural teeth…no one but you will know the difference!
Today’s dental implants mark a significant improvement over the first generations of implants, which were introduced into mainstream dentistry more than thirty years ago. There are more dental implant options now than ever before!
If you’re considering dental implants, now’s the time to schedule a free consultation with an implant dentist in the Denver area. You might just start smiling widely when you hear the possibilities for a more beautiful smile!
