If you’ve been wanting to make multiple improvements to your smile, you’ve probably been doing some research on cosmetic dentistry. You want straighter teeth, a brighter smile, and an overall “better” look but don’t want to pay for a variety of procedures.

With porcelain veneers, you won’t have to worry about getting a whitening treatment every year or so to renew your new sparkling smile. But why won’t your new dental veneers stain? Let’s explore the science behind your stain-resistant veneers.

Want the maximum in tooth replacement? Dental implants have a remarkably high success rate — with procedures as much as 98% successful, by many estimates. They work by fusing together with your jawbone in the process known as osseointegration. If there’s not enough healthy bone structure present, though, the crucial process may never occur. In cases where the jaw is not strong enough to support dental implants, your dentist in Jacksonville may recommend a bone grafting procedure.
Bone grafting can help people who would otherwise be ineligible for dental implants enjoy all the benefits of this comprehensive tooth replacement option. It may add several months to the overall treatment for dental implants, but patients agree it’s worth the investment in time for a stable, secure tooth replacement.
