Do Dental Implants Look Real or Fake? By Louis Buono on July 26, 2023

individuals with dental implantsWhether a person is missing a single tooth or several, tooth loss can significantly impact oral health, functions, and aesthetics. Dental implants are a popular tooth loss treatment. Dental implants replace the crown and roots of a tooth to improve oral functions, enhance the smile’s appearance, and preserve bone density.

Dental implants offer many benefits that differentiate them from other tooth loss treatments. Still, people often worry if dental implants look real or fake. Dr. Louis J. Buono of Garden City Smiles addresses concerns about the appearance of dental implants so his Long Island, NY, and Garden City, NY, patients feel confident when choosing these dental restorations.

Dental Implants Mimic Natural Teeth

When people are considering tooth loss replacement options, often one of the biggest concerns is how the smile will look after treatment. Our Long Island patients want a dental restoration that blends in with adjacent teeth rather than stands out as artificial. Fortunately, dental implants do just that. Dental implants closely mimic natural teeth to give patients an attractive smile that doesn’t look fake.

Dental implants have the same form as natural teeth, which helps them maintain a realistic appearance. While other dental restorations bond to teeth or sit above the gum line, dental implants are positioned in the jaw, where they anchor down dental crowns, bridges, or dentures. This gives dental implants a natural-looking position that helps them blend in with adjacent teeth. Implants are also fabricated with high-quality materials that mimic the appearance of tooth enamel, even reflecting light like natural teeth.

How Are Dental Implants Personalized?

The materials used to fabricate dental implants and the placement technique make these restorations look natural. But what further ensures the natural and attractive appearance of dental implants is the way they are personalized to each of our patients. 

Dr. Buono relies on science, engineering, and an artistic eye to create dental implants that are strong, stable, and natural-looking. During a dental implant consultation, Dr. Buono customizes dental restorations that will blend in with adjacent teeth while complementing a patient’s facial structure. Dental implant restorations can be personalized by size, shape, and color, so they never look artificial and never stand out against natural teeth.

Dental Implants Feel Like Natural Teeth

The appearance of dental implants is important, but equally essential is how dental implants feel. Dental implants fuse with the jaw’s bone tissues to provide superior support and stability to dental restorations. Dental implants are strong enough to sustain the usual wear and tear of biting and chewing and they never slip or shift out of place. The stability and comfort of dental implants make them feel just like natural teeth.
