Dental Implants in Lakeview Chicago, IL
Dental implants are a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure to treat tooth loss. Dental implants are designed to blend in perfectly with your natural teeth and are a great option to restore your smile.
What is a dental implant?
Dental implants are a dental prosthesis made of a titanium screw that is inserted into the jaw to mimic a tooth root and an abutment which supports a crown to resemble a natural tooth. The crown can be replaced with a bridge if there are multiple gaps to fill, or replaced by dentures attached to two or more implants for additional support.

- Similar in appearance to your natural tooth
