Dental Implants can be used to replace missing teeth and should be cosmetic as well as functional. This case reflects how strategic planning and 3D imaging allows proper implant placement so that the cosmetic and functtional requirements of the patient can be met. This can be termed Functional Cosmetic Dentistry®. In addition to proper implant placement, notice how the porcelain was designed to blend in with the other teeth in terms of shade, shape, texture, and glaze to create a beautuiful dental implant smile!

We provided comprehensive dental care with dental implants, crowns, bite correction, and veneers to create a beautiful and functional smile with long-term stability.
Bite management treatment, and then veneers and crowns to the corrected bite. Dental implants were also completed on some of the back teeth. Looking at the whole patient rather than just the teeth allowed for these results and more conservative treatment on the teeth as they were built back up as opposed to grinding them down like conventional dentistry.
