Then dental implants came along. These were vastly expensive and had little uptake success. Expensive until now.
Through advances in dental implant techniques, training and the sheer number of implant specialists, prices have dropped substantially. Implants offer a chance to regain ones natural smile. A titanium rod is implanted into the jaw bone and left to set in place with a temporary plastic crown. This is to ensure that the implant takes to the jaw bone. If bone itself is missing where the implant is to be placed then bone augmentation can also be carried out by a dental implant specialist. Once the implant has healed the porcelain cap is attached. The porcelain top is designed offsite, normally, by an artist who fits the new tooth exactly to the mouth from the viewing of pictures. After attachment of the new porcelain cap, the implant feels like a normal tooth. This effect carries over when eating.
To sum up, implants are now a less costly natural looking option.
