Cosmetic Improvements and Tooth Implants Denver

There are a lot of reasons to consider tooth implants. Patients often have the procedure after an injury has knocked out one of the original teeth and left them with an incomplete smile. Other people live with defective teeth or missing teeth for years, dealing with confidence issues and concerns about their appearance until they decide to make a change.

In each case, the decision comes down to creating an aesthetically-pleasing appearance. Attractive teeth make you want to share your smile more often; they can give you greater satisfaction in the way you look and help you in social and professional interactions.

As a prosthodontist, Dr. Aldo Leopardi specializes in procedures such as tooth implants. Patients choose him for their work because of his advanced training, extensive experience, and excellent care. Dr. Leopardi sees his work as a way of giving patients the confidence and appearance that they want. It’s part of the reason that he continues advancing his skills and expanding his services.

The Benefits of Tooth Implants

When patients explore options for repairing their smile, they may consider a variety of procedures. Commonly, they will look at a fixed appliance, which, like an implant, is meant to be a long-term solution. Dental bridges are one type of appliance that connects an artificial replacement tooth to the surrounding teeth.

Removable devices are another option patients may explore. These are prosthetics supported by the tissues of the mouth instead of the teeth. Typically, removable devices are an immediate and fast solution to missing teeth, but as the name suggests, they are not meant as a permanent replacement.

Patients receive significant advantages by choosing instead to get a tooth implant. Greenwood Village patients get a solution that is:

  • Longer-lasting than both fixed and removable devices. According to the American Dental Association, dental implants are over 95% successful for 20-plus years.
  • Patients can eat and drink the same foods with implants as with their regular teeth, while those with removable devices aren’t always capable of chewing some types of food.
  • Tooth implants help patients avoid concerns such as bone resorption (the erosion of bone in the area of the missing tooth.)

Addressing the Aesthetic Concerns

The patients who come to Dr. Leopardi are looking for high-quality improvements in their appearance. Beyond dental services, Dr. Leopardi also provides ancillary cosmetic procedures that help adult patients look more youthful. His expanded offerings include BOTOX® treatments, which can improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines, and dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM®. These products help to correct facial wrinkles and folds to provide a refreshed appearance.

Thanks to these procedures, patients who come to Dr. Leopardi are getting much more than a solution to missing and damaged teeth. They are getting a complete rejuvenation in the way that they look.
