Our Team of dental professionals is here to help you with your dental implant.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots. They are an effective solution to replacing missing teeth. They are designed to blend naturally with the rest of your teeth. Implants are usually made of titanium or other materials that are not harmful to you. The implant is like an anchor that holds a missing tooth.
A replacement tooth is placed over the anchor allowing your smile to be restored as well as your confidence. This is a surgical procedure where the implant is inserted into the jawbone. You may need some time for the bone surrounding the implant to heal before you’re fitted with replacement teeth.
If you have lost one or more permanent teeth, you should consider dental implants. Some things to take into account might be the state of your health. If you have cancer, uncontrolled diabetes, alcoholism, or significant periodontal disease, you may not be the best candidate for implants.
Discuss your options with a dental specialist or surgeon before you decide. Make sure that they are aware of any medical conditions you have and what medication you are taking, which could slow or alter the healing process.
The costs of your implant treatment may usually be covered by your dental insurance plan or extended dental coverage. If you are looking for more information about a specific service and the costs associated, contact one of our representatives for help. Our treatment coordinators can help you come up with an affordable way for you to pay for the oral health services you need.

Don’t worry if you have reached the maximum cap with your insurance provider for the year or do not otherwise have coverage to pay for your dental treatment, there are other options available.
We offer a convenient list of options for making payment arrangements, and we work hard to make many third-party lenders and other types of credit programs available for our patients.
My experience at Houston Cosmetic Dentistry was outstanding. I needed a dentist in the area for a teeth cleaning and regular checkups. Dr. Evan and his staff are friendly and I liked the positive atmosphere.-Eric Banks
