What Are Dental Implants?
Get Your Smile Back With Dental Implants
There are many reasons we might lose our tooth – Sports injuries, accidents and tooth decay.

There are a few ways to fill that gap, and one of them is with dental implants.
Looking to get Dental Implants in Reston VA?
If you are missing one or more teeth, you know that it can be detrimental to your overall health and wellness. The inability to eat a healthy and well balanced diet, jawbone degeneration, and a compromised self-image are just a few side effects of missing teeth. You may have tried solutions like dentures, bridges or partials, and have grown tired of the upkeep or messy adhesives that are sometimes required. If this describes your situation, then there is good news. You do not have to live with temporary fixes any longer. Just ask Reston Dentist Dr. Mahathi Nanduri, about permanent, secure tooth replacement with dental implants.
Dental Implants are a state-of-the-art new technology that allows us to replace missing teeth with new artificial teeth that are so lifelike, nobody will ever know the difference. A dental implant is made up of two primary parts – the titanium post that is placed in your jaw in the space left by your missing tooth, and the crown that is attached to the post and designed to look just like one of your own teeth.
Whenever you lose a tooth, the force of your bite shifts to the teeth next to the empty space. As your bite changes, it may cause difficulty in chewing, damage to your jaw, cause other teeth to shift and extrude out of socket, and also makes it harder to clean teeth, resulting in tooth decay and periodontal diseases. That is why it is critical to receive teeth replacement and dental implants in Reston from our dental office to remedy your tooth loss in order to ensure your teeth and mouth maintain their proper function, form, health, and beauty.
At Smilezone Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we create individual smiles that compliment a patient’s facial features and enhance their overall facial beauty. Our tooth loss solutions seek to establish facial harmony where the smile is not the central focal point, but enhances the overall facial appearance. One of the ways we do that for our patients is through teeth replacement with dental implants. Our dental implants in Reston are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The implants themselves are tiny posts that are placed by our dentist into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Small posts are then attached to the implant, which protrude through the gums. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. You will regain the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
We strive to ensure our patients of all ages have a pleasant experience, and are sent home with a bright, beautiful, healthy smile. You never get a second chance to make a first impression, so let teeth replacement and dental implants in Reston from our dental office ensure you leave a lasting and smiling impression.
