Get A Beautiful Smile With Tooth Implant Dentistry Here In Midlothian VA
Your smile is one of the most important aspects of your personality. At White & White near Richmond, we know how important it is for you to smile with confidence. That’s why we offer dental implants, often the best treatment option for replacing missing teeth.
Dental implants replace teeth roots and missing teeth. The result is a new permanent root structure in your jawbone to hold artificial teeth.
Implant dentistry tends to stabilize your jawbone and help it maintain its shape and density. Dental implants also support your facial skeleton and, indirectly, your gum tissues, cheeks and lips.
Best of all, dental implants feel completely natural and help you eat, chew, smile, and talk – as if you had your original teeth. With proper care, a tooth implant can last a lifetime. To better understand how the dentists at White & White perform tooth implants, check out the video below:
