Missing teeth can be embarrassing, causing people to hide their smile and lose their self-esteem. The space created by missing teeth can easily become infected with bacteria, causing other teeth to shift out of place, and making it difficult for people to speak or eat correctly. Dr. Nolan and the staff at Smile Santa Maria Dental are sensitive to the hardship a missing tooth can create. We provide dental implants so that our patients can regain their self-confidence, improve their health, and approach life boldly.
When you come in for a free consultation, Dr. Nolan will examine your mouth and jawbone to determine if the procedure is right for you. Our highly trained staff will take an impression of your mouth so that your implants can be created in a dental lab. Each implant will be made to match the size and shape of the surrounding teeth along with having a perfect color match. Teeth restored with dental implants can’t get cavities! A replacement tooth, or crown, doesn’t decay like a natural tooth, but you still must brush, floss and care for it and your surrounding natural teeth and gums in the same manner as natural teeth. Regular professional cleanings and dental check-ups also are essential.
Dr. Nolan and the staff at Smile Santa Maria Dental are friendly, welcoming, and will take the time to educate and inform you of all of your options. Schedule an appointment and let us transform your smile!
