The use of dental implants for restoring the function of the smile after tooth loss

Dental Implants | Palm Beach Gardens, FL

Whether patients have lost teeth from decay, disease, or extraction, our professionals at Lerner and Lemongello Dentistry understand how frustrating it can be to make a decision in regards to replacing these teeth. Drs. Jay M. Lerner and Gerard J. Lemongello provide patients with a myriad of options that can be used for smile enhancement, including the most desirable option of dental implants.

Understanding dental implants

With tooth loss comes a change in one’s aesthetic appearance as well as their ability to eat and speak. If left unaddressed, it can also result in bone loss as the bone shrinks, causing existing teeth to become loose. By using restorations such as dental implants, patients can restore the function and beauty of their smile, while also maintaining their bone. This is because dental implants are placed into the bone of the jaw during oral surgery and stimulate bone growth through a process called osseointegration. Osseointegration allows the bone to wrap around the implant and give it a sturdy foundation for proper functionality and improved integration into the smile. Unlike other restorations, such as bridges and dentures, which can result in bone loss, dental implants can improve the bone while also providing a stable replacement.

How are dental implants restored?

Dental implants are versatile, and the way in which they are restored depends on the way they are being used. Patients may use a dental implant to replace a single tooth, during which the implant will be restored with a dental crown over the abutment. If patients are using the dental implant to anchor one or both ends of a dental bridge, they may be used in this manner as well. Some patients have dental implants placed along the dental arch to hold a full denture, ensuring stability and strength when compared to the use of natural suction or dental adhesives.

Porcelain veneers are a wonderful option for enhancing the smile

Porcelain veneers | Palm Beach Gardens FLAt Lerner and Lemongello Dentistry, patients in the community of Palm Beach Gardens, FL can seek assistance in improving the appearance of their smile with cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry is a special field of dental work that focuses on the aesthetics of the teeth and gums and may include enhancement options such as the fabrication and placement of porcelain veneers.

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are best described by Drs. Jay M. Lerner and Gerard J. Lemongello as ceramic facings that are custom-made to bond over the front of a natural tooth to cover an imperfection that is impacting the appearance of the smile. These veneers are made to look just like the natural tooth and are often bonded on the teeth near the front of the mouth. These are the teeth that are most noticeable when patients speak, laugh, and smile with others. Porcelain veneers are incredibly popular for covering common issues such as:

• Misaligned teeth

• Permanently stained teeth

• Broken or chipped teeth

• Unusually shaped teeth

• Gaps between teeth

What is the process of obtaining a porcelain veneer?

Before moving forward with the use of porcelain veneers, patients will first book a consultation visit with their dentist to determine if they are appropriate candidates. The best candidates for porcelain veneers are patients who have an otherwise healthy smile and want to address an imperfection on the anterior teeth. Once patients have chosen porcelain veneers as their restoration, they will undergo preparations. These preparations include filing down the front of the tooth before taking impressions. These impressions are sent to a dental laboratory so the ceramist can fabricate the new veneer and return it to the dental office for bonding in place.

Find out how dentures can be used to restore function and beauty to your smile!

Dentures Palm Peach Gardens, FLWith missing teeth, many patients are worried about the appearance of their smile, as well as its functionality. It is essential that patients take pride in their smile and work with a dentist to immediately replace these teeth whenever possible. This eliminates problems such as shifting arches and lost bone. Many patients in the area of Palm Beach Gardens, FL are excited to learn about solutions that can replace one or more teeth, including dentures.

What are dentures?

Dentures are removable restorations that are used to replace teeth. When patients think of dentures, they sometimes remember their grandparents’ false teeth. They may think of dentures as a problematic solution to missing teeth. Fortunately, dentures have come a long way over the years, and now patients can visit with the dentists at Lerner and Lemongello Dentistry to discuss their options. Dentures include two varieties including partial and full dentures.

Partial dentures

Partial dentures are restorations that are used in replacing one or several teeth at once. The restoration is made of acrylic and metal framework and snaps into place within the arch. It uses false teeth that slide into the arch to replace the missing ones, completing the appearance of the smile and improving functionality for eating and speaking.

Full dentures

Patients who have lost all their teeth within the dental arch will want to consider the advantages of full dentures. These are restorations that include false teeth and gums made of acrylic. These are held in place with natural suction, denture glue, or even the use of several dental implants along the arch. Full dentures are the most effective way of replacing all the teeth within the smile and look completely natural, as they are custom made for patients.

Interested in full or partial dentures?

If you live in or around the area of Palm Beach Gardens, FL and are interested in cosmetic improvements for the smile, the team of Lerner and Lemongello Dentistry encourage you to book a consultation visit with our staff and discuss your options. For many patients, composite resin bonding provides many advantages.

Understanding cosmetic resin bonding

Composite resin bonding, or “dental bonding,” is the use of a special material to reshape a tooth or disguise imperfections. Composite resin bonding is used for:

  • Covering chips and cracks
  • Reshaping an unusually shaped tooth
  • Covering teeth that are misaligned
  • Filling a tooth that has an area of decay
  • Disguising small gaps between the teeth

Many patients love the idea of having composite resin bonding treatments on their smile. It can cover up problems areas in just one appointment and provide lasting results. It is a faster and more affordable alternative to porcelain veneers, which are thin ceramic facings custom made to cover the same issues. Composite resin bonding is subjected to staining and discoloration over time, but this often doesn’t keep patients from considering it as an option, even while they are considering porcelain veneers in the long run. At Lerner and Lemongello, our dentists will assess a patient for a cosmetic restoration, and then discuss with them the pros and cons of each. Educating patients in this manner is the best way to ensure they have the information they need to make a knowledgeable decision for their specific needs.
