Dental implants are considered the standard in tooth replacement because they are not only extremely versatile, but they are also similar in design to your own natural tooth. Dr. Frame, Santa Clara dentist, can often place implants in a simple surgical procedure, and once the bone heals around the implant, it will act as a root for the new tooth. Implants are often used with dental crowns to create a new tooth that looks, feels and acts just like the one it replaced, but they can also be used to add strength and stability to dental crowns or dentures.
Invisalign is another treatment option. Santa Clara dentist Dr. Frame can use clear aligners to straighten teeth or to treat spacing or alignment issues. Patients often appreciate not just the subtle appearance of the aligners but also are able to continue their diet and lifestyle habits without the need to worry about metal wires or braces. Teeth whitening can be used with Invisalign or on its own to erase stains from foods, beverages and habits. A single treatment can brighten teeth by up to eight shades.
