Today, dental implants provide patients with the opportunity to replace missing teeth in a way that achieves permanent, fixed results. Implants themselves are not designed to replace missing tooth structure. These titanium posts, inserted into healthy jawbone by your experienced dentist, replace the missing root.

Advantage of Dental Implants

The progression of dental techniques and materials has significantly improved the look and feel of dentures. However, only dental implants will replace missing roots. As such, dental implants most closely mimic the overall structure of natural teeth. When teeth are replaced with dental implants and crowns, a bridge, or full denture appliances, functionality and aesthetics are restored to such a degree that even implant patients forget their teeth are not completely natural.

SUCCESS STORIES

best Google review for dentist
Originally, Powered By best Google reviews for dentist

I needed implant on my front tooth and given that I reached this state due to suboptimal of an earlier dentist, I was really worried about letting any dentist touch my tooth. So I stayed with a broken post for THREE years. Finally got enough courage (and did enough analysis of doctors around the area) to reach StarBrite.

I am so glad I did. A few bullet points:
(a) I never had to wait during my appt- big plus
(b) I was informed of the expenses from get go and there were no surprises
(c) Doctor and her staff were super nice and were always prepared by the time I got there. It made me feel welcome and respected.
(d) There was NO pain… let me say it again… no pain during any of the 4 sittings
(e) Doctor kept me informed me at all times, of the process, material used, actions taken that day, precautions I need to keep etc.
(f) Every time Dr. took pains to ensure that the took (temp as well as final) not only looked good, but also felt good in variety of manners.

Overall I am very happy with the experience. It took 9 months from start to finish but it all ended well.

Thanks Doctor.
