Dental Implant Restoration in Austin, TX

If you're missing one or more teeth, you may consider dental implants. Dental implants are a popular tooth replacement method among patients. The dental implant process is a two-part procedure to fill in the gaps from your missing teeth. The dental implant itself is a tiny titanium post surgically placed into your jawbone, acting as a stable and solid foundation for the tooth restoration. At Southwest Smiles, we partner with your oral surgeon to finish the dental implant process by placing the natural-looking tooth restoration.

Our experienced team also handles dental implant repairs. If you need a crown replacement or you have a loose or broken dental implant, contact our office so we can help take care of the issue as soon as possible.

Have questions about dental implant restorations?

Dental Implant Process

The first step of the implant procedure is the placement process performed by your oral surgeon. They put the dental implant(s) into your jaw and once your jawbone heals, we'll take over from there. We create either custom dental crowns or snap-on dentures to securely fit on top of the titanium implant. Once the restoration is secured onto the implant(s), you'll be able to eat, laugh, and talk with ease again!

Types of Dental Implant Restorations

Crown Restorations

Crown restorations are a common way to complete a dental implant. After taking a mold of your teeth, we design a dental crown that matches your other teeth and attaches to your dental implant. While we make your dental crown, we'll provide you with a temporary restoration until it's done.

Snap-On Denture Restoration

For patients missing a few or all of their teeth, we may recommend implant-supported dentures. Our denture restorations are fixed in place to your dental implants so you won't have to worry about them moving or shifting around. They are a comfortable way to get a smile you'll love without dealing with loose, ill-fitting dentures.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Still on the fence about dental implants? Here are some of their advantages compared to other tooth replacement options:

  • Look, feel, and function like natural teeth
  • Permanently replace missing teeth
  • Maintain facial shape
  • Keep other teeth from shifting into gaps
  • Can be brushed and flossed normally
  • Last a lifetime with proper care
