Now patients who are missing teeth have a strong, beautiful alternative to bridges, partials, or full dentures. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Dental implants combine both restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Dental implants replace one or more missing teeth or secure a dental bridge or denture with stability similar to a natural tooth root. New tooth colored materials eliminate any gray shadow under the implant crown. And when the Dental Crown is created by a skilled cosmetic dentist such as those at Chicago Beautiful Smiles, it can look as well as function just like a natural, healthy tooth. The restorations will match your natural teeth and blend seamlessly with your smile.

Dental implant patients enjoy restored function, which allows a healthy diet of hard-to-chew foods. Speech may also improve. Strong and secure, your new smile will boost your confidence, enhance your appearance, and improve your quality

It’s no secret that your smile says a lot about your confidence and how you feel about yourself — in both your personal and professional life. Many people believe that losing teeth is just a natural process of growing old. The truth is, you can usually keep your teeth all your life if you take care of them; however, people lose teeth for many different reasons, sometimes in spite of excellent care:

  • Tooth decay
  • Large fillings
  • Broken teeth
  • Accident or trauma
  • Gum disease

If you’ve lost one or more of your teeth, restoring the natural function and appearance of your smile can no doubt be difficult to accomplish, but with the help of Drs. Hartlieb and Ching — and today’s modern Cosmetic Denturesprocedures — a full, natural-looking smile is much more attainable than ever before.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Dental implants are strong, natural-looking replacements for missing teeth. Not only do they provide the same function as your natural teeth, they look and feel so real that no one will be able to tell you ever lost a tooth to begin with. Implants also improve your overall oral health by preventing bone deterioration and preserving facial structure and if taken care of properly, they can last a lifetime.

Dental Implants & Dentures

Dental implants are also a great option for anyone who has become disheartened with their current dentures or bridges. Some choose to replace dentures with dental implants because they can heighten their range of function and can be cared for with normal brushing and flossing, just like a natural tooth. Others will choose to have their dentures “fixed” into place by using dental implants to securely hold the denture in position; this minimizes any slipping, clicking, or discomfort that can accompany poor-fitting dentures. The use of dental implants in order to retain a denture has become the standard of care.

Our talented dentists offer dental implants to patients seeking a lifelong solution for tooth replacement that functions naturally and looks amazing. We encourage you to discuss your tooth replacement options with Drs. Hartlieb and Ching by scheduling your consultation today.
