Dental Implants as a Cosmetic Restoration
Cosmetic dentistry is a specific field of dental work that focuses not only on the restoration of the teeth and gums but in restorations that look and function at their best. Patients who are missing the front teeth, several teeth, or even molars near the back of the mouth may be curious about their tooth replacement options. Our team at Manhattan Beach Dental Solutions may recommend a reliable solution known as dental implants, which continue to be the most desirable way to restore a smile after tooth loss or extraction.
How do dental implants work?
Dr. Don Mungcal of Manhattan Beach Dental Solutions in Manhattan Beach, California, describes the dental implant as a replacement for the natural root of a tooth. It is made of titanium, a metal that does not corrode and is biocompatible to the human body. The top of the dental implant post is called the abutment and can be restored using different types of restorations, including full dentures, dental bridges, and dental crowns.

Are dental implants considered cosmetic restoration?
Because the implant is made of metal, it is not a cosmetic restoration until it is covered over the abutment with a porcelain crown, bridge, or denture. The restoration will disguise the implant structure underneath, ensuring a more attractive repair than other tooth replacement options, such as partial dentures, which may have visible metal clasps that are noticeable to others. Dental implants are also a long-lasting cosmetic restoration because, with proper care and regular dental visits, patients with implants will often enjoy them for decades, along with their oral health and wellness.
