Taking care of your teeth is the most important priority of modern dentistry, but sometimes it is not possible to save your natural teeth. There are many reasons why you might lose a tooth – injury, trauma, decay and gum disease are the most important. Replacing a tooth or multiple teeth as soon as possible can save you time, money and your oral health.
In Leicester, dental implants are the answer of cosmetic dentistry to missing teeth. Surprisingly, some people with missing teeth avoid visiting the dentist because they are worried that a ‘fake’ tooth will look worse than no tooth at all. If you are concerned about the appearance of your teeth, Dr Duncan Ralston, the leading cosmetic dentist at Ralston Dental and Cosmetic Clinic, is here to help. His experience and creative skills combined with modern dental techniques will ensure that your new teeth will look and feel just like your natural teeth.
The aesthetic benefits of dental implants in Leicester
Tooth loss can have a dramatic effect on a person’s appearance, since losing one or more teeth can actually alter the shape and overall look of the face and the neck. Lips and cheeks collapse internally and the distance between the nose and the chin becomes smaller.
This aged, sunken look is the result of two processes. Firstly, your natural teeth serve as a foundation for the framework of your face and when they are gone there is nothing left to support the soft tissue providing plumpness to the cheeks and the lips. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, tooth loss leads to the deterioration of the jawbone, which can make you look old before your time. Modern cosmetic dentistry can address both issues through dental implants.
Once you will have your dental implants fitted at Ralston Dental and Cosmetic Clinic, you will notice that your natural bite will be restored, adding volume to your face and preventing further deterioration of the jawbone.
Not only will you appear younger, but you will also regain confidence in your smile. If you are interested in the aesthetic benefits that dental implants in Leicester can offer, contact us today.
