Dental implants offer a number of benefits over other options for replacing missing teeth, such as dentures and dental bridges.

Dental implants not only look, feel and function like your healthy natural teeth, but they can also be permanent with proper care. Your consultation and exam with Santa Monica implant dentist Dr. Ana Brightleaf will determine if you’re a candidate to enjoy the benefits of dental implants.

Dental implants feature titanium implant posts that act as replacement roots for your artificial tooth. Your jaw bone naturally grows around your implants to anchor them firmly in place.

The implants themselves are topped with porcelain crowns. These dental crowns are custom made to match your natural teeth in size, shape and color.

With a healthy diet, good oral hygiene and regular checkups, your dental implants will provide you with a beautiful smile and functional bite for the rest of your life. Dental implants are maintained much like your regular teeth, with brushing at least twice daily followed by flossing at least once daily; Dr. Brightleaf will review your dental implants care guidelines with you in detail.
