Houston’s Dental Implants Dentist
Our team has decades of experience helping people reclaim their smiles and restore full function to their teeth. For patients who are missing one or more of their teeth, dental implants with fitted porcelain crowns, porcelain dental bridges, or fixed dentures can restore strong, natural form and function to your mouth.
If you’re missing teeth and seeking dental implants treatment from an experienced dentist, give us a call. We are deeply connected with the needs of our patients and will personally guide you in restoring your beautiful smile.
Dental implants are a restorative and cosmetic solution for missing teeth that replace your entire tooth structure, from root to crown. The treatment procedure involves embedding an artificial tooth root (implant) in the jaw, allowing time for the implant to fuse to the natural bone tissue, and then topping the implant with a custom crown that looks and functions like your natural tooth. For treatments involving multiple adjacent teeth, your implants can be topped with a dental bridge or fixed dentures with full function and natural appearance.
We specialize in dental care that also improves smiles, so when you need a crown on one or more of your teeth, we’ll place a tooth-colored, porcelain crown that restores the shape and strength of your tooth, while improving its appearance.
Porcelain Dental Bridges
If you are missing teeth, a porcelain dental bridge is a highly aesthetic option for replacing multiple teeth. The porcelain bridge is secured with dental implants, and it looks and feels and functions like your own natural teeth.
Implant-fixed (or implant-supported) dentures are designed to and eliminate the problems associated with traditional dentures including bone loss, gum disease, bad breath, and discomfort. Implant-fixed dentures are attached to dental implants to provide a beautiful looking replacement for your teeth that will function just like natural teeth.
Patients Who Are Good Candidates
Patients who have one or more missing teeth and are healthy enough for the surgery and healing process are good candidates for dental implants. Schedule your free smile consultation with Dr. Murphy to learn more about the treatment and health requirements.
