Some people worry about getting an implant to replace their missing tooth because they think it will look out of place or be noticeably different from the rest of their teeth. Don’t put off a beautiful, healthy smile because of concerns like this. Implants are made to fit in with your natural teeth. In fact, implants feel and look so natural that you won’t be able to tell the difference between your natural teeth and the implant.

They both can be color-matched to the remaining natural teeth and provide an improved and healthier smile. They both are used to restore functionality when it has been impaired. Both are used as their name implies — and both benefit from Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics (CEREC®) technology.

Many of us expect to have our teeth cleaned by our dental provider as part of our routine oral examinations and checkups.
