Dental ImplantsDental implants are an amazing solution for replacing one or more teeth in adults. Are you interested in learning more about dental implants and how they can help you? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Our Roanoke and Rocky Mount, VA, dentists Dr. Young Park and Dr. Michelle Kim are happy to offer dental implants. Here’s what a dental implant can do for you.

A Realistic False Tooth

We know that you want a false tooth that looks and feels just like the real thing, and nothing is as close to natural teeth as dental implants. This is because implants are designed to replace your missing tooth roots, which offer a variety of benefits including a permanent and durable foundation from which to support an artificial tooth such as a dental crown. You’ll be amazed how much a dental implant actually looks just like the rest of your smile.

A Lifelong Restoration

Longevity is also important when it comes to choosing the right tooth replacement option for you. We know that it’s important for our patients to get restoration that is going to last. Luckily, with the proper oral care and maintenance, you could end up having your dental implant for the rest of your life. Take care of your implant and it will take care of you!

Prevent Bone Loss

Bone loss is a common complication of untreated tooth loss. This is why it’s so important to visit our Roanoke, VA, general dentist as soon as possible after tooth loss. The sooner you seek treatment the better; however, dental implants are the only restoration that is able to preserve the jawbone and to prevent bone loss. How? The implant is placed into the jawbone where it naturally melds together with the implant to become one solid unit. Just like the rest of your tooth roots, the implant will provide the jawbone with the stimulation it needs to stay healthy and to prevent deterioration.

If you are living with tooth loss in Roanoke or Rocky Mount, VA, and want to find out if dental implants are right for you then call Park Dental Solutions today to schedule a consultation with our dental team.

A dentist at Park Dental Solutions in Rocky Mount and Roanoke, VA, can restore your worn out, damaged teeth with porcelain veneers. It’s a cosmetic treatment that has helped countless patients see the true potential of their smiles.

What Don’t You Like About Your Smile?

Every patient who goes in for a cosmetic consultation will one or more specific issues regarding the appearance of their teeth. Maybe the teeth have darkened in color due to medication, or there are small spaces between them because they’re too small. No matter how rough, ridged, discolored, and chipped your teeth may look, veneers will cover up the imperfections immediately.

A Smile Restoration with Veneers

A Rocky Mount and Roanoke, VA, dentist will examine your teeth to ensure that they can be restored with veneers. This is the premier treatment used by dentists across the country to improve the smiles of everyone from movie stars to business professionals. The lightweight, translucent veneers are attached to the front of the teeth and cemented with a custom-shaded white bonding material. The results of a veneer installation are truly amazing.

The Big Smile Reveal

After the first appointment, you’ll wait a few weeks for your custom veneers to come back from the lab. Once your veneers are cemented in place, your dentist will do some final adjustments to the exterior so that they will look as natural as possible. When you’re considering the cost of this popular cosmetic treatment, also consider the value that you will get from having a beautiful smile for many years to come.

There are many dental services that can improve your smile. Missing teeth can be replaced, imperfect teeth can be concealed and dull cosmetic dentistryor stained teeth can be made whiter and brighter. Whatever imperfections you would like to correct or conceal, there are dental services that can help. At Park Dental Solutions, Dr. Young Park, your Roanoke and Rocky Mount, VA area dentist, can help you determine which dental services are right for you.

Dental Implants

One type of dental service that serves multiple purposes is the placement of dental implants. Dental implants replace missing teeth. They are fixed in place and will not fall out or come loose versus dentures and other temporary dental prostheses. In addition to replacing missing teeth, dental implants can improve overall tooth functioning, like biting and chewing, and reduce wear and tear on the surrounding natural teeth. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.

Lumineers & Veneers

Installation of Lumineers and veneers is a cosmetic dental service that can improve the appearance of your smile. Lumineers and veneers are applied to the front surface of the teeth to conceal imperfections, such as chips, cracks and discolorations. Both are essentially thin covers for the fronts of teeth. The primary difference is that Lumineers are thinner than veneers. The application of veneers requires your Roanoke and Rocky Mount dentist to first prepare the front surface of the tooth so that the veneer does not stick out too far. This is not necessary with Lumineers.

Invisalign

Invisalign is a dental service for straightening the teeth. Rather than the metal wires and brackets of traditional braces, Invisalign utilizes soft plastic trays to move the teeth. The trays are clear so they are significantly less visible as opposed to metal braces. The trays are also removable and can be taken out when eating or when brushing and flossing. This feature makes it much easier to keep the teeth clean versus traditional braces.

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening treatments offer the best results for significantly whitening and brightening your smile in the shortest period of time. The whitening treatments offered by your Rocky Mount and Roanoke area dentist deliver superior results to over-the-counter products and are longer lasting.

You can dramatically improve your smile with a number of different dental services. From straightening the teeth to whitening them, there is a service to meet your needs. Arrange a consultation with Dr. Park, your dentist in Roanoke and Rocky Mount, VA, to discuss which dental services would benefit you. To schedule an appointment, contact Park Dental Solutions at either the Roanoke office by calling (540) 563-9398 or the Rocky Mount office by calling (540) 483-7577.
