Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry Los Altos

Dental Implant 2What is your confidence worth? At Legacy Dental Care in Los Altos, CA, we believe that there is no better time than the present to take a step towards the comfort and convenience of a beautiful smile, achievable through specialized and expert crafted dental implants.

A dental implant is a specially engineered, titanium tooth root that occupies the space in your mouth where your natural tooth used to exist. This implant creates a permanent space for a replacement tooth, as well as stabilizes the jawbone so that bone density is maintained, and bone loss is prevented. Today’s sciences and technologies allow for dental implants to be minimally invasive, while still being strong and long- lasting embellishments upon your smile’s appearance. They don’t require reducing other teeth like a dental bridge might, and are rapidly becoming the new standard for replacing a missing tooth, because of their success and satisfaction rates among patients. Furthermore, dental implants aid in improving your oral health and overall well-being. The obvious and immediate benefits, including a beautiful and natural feeling smile, improved speech, and convenience eating, are second only to the inescapable self- esteem boosts patients are bound to experience with their extraordinary smile.  

You may find yourself questioning whether or not you’re a qualified candidate for dental implants. Do you have a missing tooth or teeth? Do you have trouble biting or chewing? Has your speech been altered due to your missing tooth or teeth? Are you committed to the process of finding a long- lasting and durable solution to your current oral situation? Then a dental implant is probably right for you! Make sure to discuss any ongoing health problems you may have with your Los Altos dentists Dr. McBirney and Dr. Diamond, and after a thorough consultation,they will determine if you’re a good candidate for this life- changing procedure. It’s also important to remember that the cost of your specific treatment plan will depend on the specialized care for your individual mouth; these implants are a long-term investment that can last a lifetime when properly cared for. Dental implants can take care of one or two missing teeth, or recreate the whole foundation for a new smile altogether!
