A naturally beautiful smile with dental implant restorations
If you are missing teeth and are considering placement of dental implants, know that Hawkins Family Dental in Midlothian, Virginia can provide you with stunning, natural looking crowns for your dental implant.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a tooth-root substitute that is surgically attached to the jawbone. After the implant has healed, a restoration (crown) is placed above the gum line to look and operate like a natural tooth.
After a specialist has placed the dental implant as the tooth root substitute to the jawbone and you are ready for the crown to be placed, Dr. Hawkins can create a dental implant restoration that looks just like your natural teeth.
Implants look and feel so close to a natural tooth, no one will suspect it is a restoration.
Dental implants are fixed and therefore are not removed for eating or cleaning like you would with some dentures or partials.
