There is nothing quite as beautiful as a heart-warming smile. A smile radiates happiness and self-confidence. Needless to say, the teeth are an extremely important part of a beautiful smile. Not only does a missing tooth cause inconvenience, it can also detract greatly from the beauty of a smile. A person’s smile basically contains three elements – the gums, the lips and the teeth. How each of these elements affects the overall appeal of a smile is something that a good cosmetic dentist understands. Tooth restorations are a good way to restore beauty to one’s smile. However, sloppily placed or ‘visible’ tooth restorations may not lead to the effect that one is looking for.
Blending In – Functionality is extremely important – the restored tooth should be strong. But the objective of tooth restoration should not be just functionality – the restored tooth should also look natural and blend in with the teeth surrounding it. Nobody wants a restored tooth to stand out from the teeth surrounding it, like it was announcing ‘I am not a real tooth!’ Well, that is precisely the kind of results you might get when you get tooth restorations done by professionals who lack skill, experience or dedication to natural-looking results. Tooth restoration options include dentures and bridges, but the best option is dental implants. Unlike other tooth restoration options, dental implants look and function just like natural teeth. Not only do dental implants last longer, they also do not need extra maintenance, making it easy to maintain a beautiful smile.
Abutments – For attaching the crown to the dental implant, an abutment is used. There are generally two types of abutments – custom abutments and stock abutments. Made by the implant manufacturer, stock abutments are abutments which are not customized and are the same for every patient and every situation. Since they are customized, stock abutments may not be an ‘exact fit’ as gums, spacing of the teeth etc vary from patient to patient. This can lead to complications like infections and food compaction around the tooth.Custom Abutments are customized abutments – a patient’s exact implant’s mould is used to make a custom abutment. Thus, custom abutments are customized for every patient and every tooth. This leads to a perfect fit and more comfort.
Results That Look Great – A good cosmetic dentist will pay great attention to aesthetics and ensure that the abutments fit in well with the surrounding teeth so as to ensure the most natural-looking results. A good cosmetic dentist will see to it that the shape and color of the crowns placed on the abutments are such that they complement the surrounding teeth.
