"So, I haven’t even had my dental work done yet and I’m sold. I have absolutely severe dental anxiety and haven’t been to the dentist in many many years. I need a lot of work done and I’m terrified. It’s also not cheap and my own fault for that. All that being said, I went by today and was an absolute mess. I was going to do sedation and have most of the work done in one visit. After talking to the dentist again (I think Dr. John), he made me so much better about everything. He is genuinely concerned with your dental health. I am actually going to attemp to just use laughing gas because the staff here is so soothing. I will continue using this office, when my daughter is old enough, she will go to this dentist. I have told my husband to change his insurance this year so he can use them too. I am BEYOND impressed. I would give you guys a million stars if I could. In a time when patient care is so poor at so many places, it’s refreshing to go somewhere and have a care provider actually be concerned with your well-being. Well done. Really really well done.

Look Closely, The Person Sitting Near You, They May Have Dental Implants

Just look at the dental implants of friends or family sitting near you and you can quickly see not all dental implants are the same. Some implants look like fake teeth while others look exactly like a real tooth.

What is the difference?

Just like a missing tooth a fake looking tooth can zap your self-confidence and make you reluctant to laugh and smile. The visible part of a dental implant is called a crown. Precision equipment and advanced training are required to create a custom natural-looking dental implant. The crown is attached to a surface on top of the implant called an abutment. Correct positioning of the abutment is the first step in creating a natural look. Ordinary implants can be made from a composite material but for the true look of translucent real teeth, nothing comes close to porcelain. Dental implants can be shade matched to surrounding teeth however custom porcelain dental implant are exact color matched and can be shaded to the reflect top to bottom gradation. Ordinary composite dental implants are sanded and ground to create the shape of a natural tooth but custom dental implants use mapping laser technology to mirror the exact shape the tooth the implant is replacing. As a graduate of the University of Maryland Baltimore College of Dental Surgery with an emphasis in Oral Surgery and Implantology Dr. Draper has the advanced training needed to create a natural looking custom dental implant.

The difference in an “out of the box” implant and a custom implant is precision. The high level of detail and precision is often reflected in the cost of custom dental implants. Dr. Draper can work with you to balance affordability and the level of customization you need to create a natural looking smile.

Pause for a moment today and look around at the dental implants of other people near you. Ask friends and family about their experience. Keep in mind that a dental implant isn’t just a natural-looking replacement for a missing tooth. It also preserves the health of surrounding teeth, facial shape, and bone. Then consider how great it would be to smile confidently with a natural looking custom porcelain dental implant.
