Do you have any imperfections in your smile? If you do, you know that they can be embarrassing. Sadly, individuals with these types of flaws may not enjoy smiling. Luckily, our team can examine your mouth and decide what you can do about flaws—including helping you with missing teeth. While you may be presented with many options, please remember to consider implants.

As you probably know, dental implants are designed to match your other teeth. In other words, implants are a great cosmetic option—but they provide several other benefits as well. For instance, implants are designed to feel and look like your natural teeth. As you may know, missing teeth can make certain sounds difficult to pronounce. With implants, you’ll be able to speak and chew comfortably.

Furthermore, implants are extremely durable. In fact, if you care for your implant well, they can last for more than twenty-five years. In other word, with implants, you’ll be able to enjoy a healthy smile for years to come. Similarly, if you’re missing teeth for an extended period of time, your jawbone isn’t simulated and doesn’t grow. This means your cheeks may begin to look hollow and your chin could begin to tilt up.

Finally, please remember that implants are fast and safe. If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of dental implants, or would like to schedule an appointment with our team, please don’t hesitate to give Vela Dental Centers Southside a call at 361.994.4900. Our dentists, Drs. Vela and Ng, look forward to hearing from you soon!
