Best for Your Smile
Getting dental implants in Wichita Falls is the best thing you can do for your smile after losing one or more teeth. That’s because dental implants look more natural than other tooth replacement options.
Dental implants achieve their natural appearance because they–like your natural teeth–have two different parts designed for different functions. Your tooth has a root whose function is to bond with the jawbone. Then it has a dental crown on top whose function is to look good and chew effectively.
Dental implants have the same structure. The dental implant is technically just the root part of the replacement tooth. It’s usually made of titanium, which bonds directly to the jawbone. Then on top of this implant (often connected with a small abutment) is a dental crown or bridge made of advanced dental ceramics. These ceramics look like natural tooth enamel–the outer layer of your natural tooth crown.
This makes dental implants the most natural-looking tooth replacement option.
