Implants Q&A

Dental implants restore your oral health and offer you a confident smile. The team at The Celebrity Smile in Chino, California and the professional dental team have the expertise and experience to place dental implants that look and function just like your natural teeth. To find out if you’re a candidate for a dental implant restoration, call the friendly office or book your appointment online today.


What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that your dentist places in your jawbone to serve as a foundation for dental prosthetics, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures.

If any impaired teeth need to be extracted before your dental implant procedure, in some cases, the team can perform a tooth implant on the same day as extraction. They use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy — a form of regenerative medicine — to amplify natural tissue growth factors and encourage healing.

For the implant procedure, your dentist offers different types of sedation to keep you comfortable. 

The process begins by making an incision in your gums down to your jawbone. Then they create a hole into your bone to put the implant in. Implants stimulate your bone tissue and prevent bone loss.  

To finish your implant, your provider places an attachment piece on top to hold your restoration securely in place.

What is dental implant restoration?

A dental implant restoration is the prosthetic that attaches to the top of your dental implant, replacing one or more teeth. The Celebrity Smile team creates restorations that look almost identical to your original, healthy teeth. You have the opportunity to work with your dentist on the shape, size, and shade of your restoration.

Examples of restorations include:

Crown

A crown is durable and looks just like a natural tooth. Your dentist makes sure it attaches to the implant abutment correctly and that it feels comfortable. Once you have a secure fit, your provider bonds the crown in place.

Denture

A denture replaces several missing teeth. With a denture, you won’t need an implant for each tooth. Instead, your provider only needs a few implants to restore several teeth.

If you damage an implant, The Celebrity Smile Team can repair it or replace it.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants offer many benefits when compared to other tooth replacement options. Benefits include:

  • No need for a restricted diet
  • Sturdiness that allows chewing with confidence
  • Durability, helping them last for many years
  • Natural tooth appearance
  • Feels like your natural teeth
  • Stops other teeth from shifting

When you come in for your consultation, your provider at The Celebrity Smile tells you what to expect and discusses the advantages of dental implants.
