New Port Richey Dental ImplantsIn New Port Richey, dental implants can be the answer you are looking for your tooth loss. Tooth decay, gum disease and physical trauma are three common causes of tooth loss. One of these dental issues may be what you have experienced. No matter the cause, the result is still the same—a missing tooth. Without proper treatment, you may be putting yourself at risk for more dental issues. Your teeth can shift, jawbone can resorb and gums can be exposed to more bacteria.

Benefits of Dental Implants:

For one missing tooth, a dental implant may be the best choice. Dental implants in New Port Richey can offer more benefits than dentures or a bridge.
  • Stimulates the jawbone – a traditional procedure calls for a screw to be implanted into the jawbone. This part of the implant stimulates the jawbone so it doesn’t resorb.
  • Sturdy placement – a dental implant is a permanent solution, which means it’s easier to eat and speak without the worries of an implant slipping.
  • Supports surrounding teeth – teeth end up gravitating toward an empty space in the mouth. A dental implant replaces a missing tooth and provides durable support for surrounding teeth.
  • Matches natural teeth – a synthetic tooth is designed to match the natural color of your teeth, and it also feels real.
In New Port Richey, dental implant procedure is offered at our practice, and an implant boasts a 95 percent success rate. For more information, visit our “Dental Implant” page. Are you looking for a treatment option for a single tooth replacement? We can help you figure out the best way to rebuild your smile!

New Port Richey FL VeneersMost people feel nervous about going to the dentist for a routine checkup, so having a cosmetic procedure seems like an impossible feat. That said, getting the smile you have always wanted isn’t as difficult as you may believe. Our office is equipped to help Floridians get a perfect set of pearly whites with ease. For some, dental veneers may achieve this. And New Port Richey, veneers are nothing to be nervous about.
Veneers are one of the most popular dental enhancements among celebrities. You can see these cosmetic wonders just about everywhere, from Celine Dion to Tom Cruise. Dental veneers are thin sheets of porcelain or plastic that is fused to your teeth to enhance their color and shape. Veneers are a more permanent solution to discoloration and can be an efficient alternative to dental implants or braces. Unlike implants, veneers are attached to your existing teeth. In most cases, only a small bit of enamel is shaved off to allow room for the veneers. For some patients, no prep may be required. Of course, the extent of your initial preparation depends on the issues you wish to treat.
Veneers can be used to treat gaps and crooked teeth as well. Braces treat gaps and crooked teeth structurally. They are the premier option for creating a straight smile without altering the makeup of your teeth. However, sometimes a person has relatively straight teeth with a couple exceptions or their teeth are discolored or they simply do not want to commit to orthodontics. We understand that every smile is different, so every treatment plan should be different too. Dental veneers usually take three sessions to complete that includes initial examination and preparation. That means you are potentially three visits away from your dream smile.
