What to Expect From Your Surgery
with the Dental Implant Dentist
for Coppell, Texas

Dental implants are a tooth replacement method which replicates the relationship of your natural tooth with the gums and bone. The procedure for placing implants is performed as part of a two-stage process which includes the initial placement of the post and then the subsequent placement of the permanent crown.

We encourage you to contact our office to learn more about the procedure. Dr. J. Darrell Steele is the dental implant dentist for Lewisville, Texas and regularly performs this cosmetic teeth surgery to restore the smiles of our patients.

The Procedure for Cosmetic Teeth Surgery

When you arrive at our office for your cosmetic teeth surgery, Dr. Steele will first administer an anesthetic. Local anesthetic is all that is necessary in most cases. Dr. Steele then prepares your gum tissue and bone for the titanium post. Titanium is biocompatible and has the ability to fuse with the bone in a process called osseointegration, rendering the secure, permanent hold for which implants are known. This placement is phase one. Once the post is placed, you may be fitted with temporary teeth to wear throughout the osseointegration process.

When healing is complete, generally within three to four months, Dr. Steele will uncover the post and anchor an abutment to it. The abutment serves as a connector between the post and the crown, fastening the crown in place and allowing it to rise up from the gum line. The crown will be shaded and contoured to match surrounding teeth and is the only portion of the dental implant that will be visible.

After Cosmetic Teeth Surgery

Dr. Steele, the dental implant dentist for Lewisville, Texas will provide you with post-surgery care instructions. In the days following the procedure, a soft food diet will be recommended to avoid irritation of the surgical site. You may experience discomfort and some swelling or minor bleeding. This is to be expected after cosmetic teeth surgery.
