The process istypically longer than other procedures, but implants are strong and can last for manydecades.How Dental Implants are placedDental implants are placed in a few different steps. First, the actual implant is placed underthe gum, and into the bone. This dental implant will heal within a few months, in whichtime; the bone will fuse to the implant. After that, the actual "tooth" will be placed abovethe gum line, hooked to a device which is installed into the dental implant. Dental implantsare created by artistic and knowledgeable Bend dentists to help ensure that their patientshave the brightest, straightest smile possible.Smile Make-OverFor patients who have numerous dental issues, a smile make-over helps address thoseissues through a series of different treatments. During a smile make-over, Bend cosmeticdentistry professionals can fix a chipped tooth, replace missing teeth, and address otherissues. This might include severe discoloration from certain medications, dental decay, andmore. A smile make-over is generally the best course of action for those with severe dentalissues.These procedures are used to solve simple procedures as tooth discoloration, cracks,missing tooth or even tooth decay. Teeth whitening procedure is usually performed usingtwo different procedures that is, laser and professional teeth whitening. Laser teethwhitening or in-surgery whitening is a procedure that uses a light-activated bleaching gelto whiten your teeth. The procedure usually takes approx 1 -2 hours and produces instantwhitening results. Many cosmetic dentists recommend that laser whitening should befollowed up by professional home whitening but not a must if your teeth were not affectedby discoloring so much.This procedure involves thoroughly cleaning the teeth, removing any surface stains andtartar. This procedure is commonly referred to as a scale and polish. The next step will befor the dentist to make a record of the shade/color of the teeth before the procedure. This

The bleaching compound usually contains a high concentrationof peroxide (15-30%) and so the dentist will usually place some form of protection aroundthe gums so that only the teeth are exposed to the compound. This involves covering thegums with rolls of cotton and a protective gel material that hardens once applied to thegums. A cheek retractor is used to keep the lips and cheeks away from the teeth.Another cosmetic dentist procedure that is used to improve the dental makeover is dentalimplant or porcelain veneer. This procedure usually involves fitting an implant in the holewhere the missing tooth has been, sometimes it a small hole is drilled in the jawbone at theprecise location of the intended implant. The titanium implant is tightly fitted into thissocket and the gum is stitched back over the implant. Sometime the jaw bone may have lostsome bone due to injury or because of overstaying with the condition; to cater thiscosmetic dentist will perform a bone graft to make sure the size of the bone will fit in thatposition or find a small and suitable porcelain veneer to use as part of the implant. Once theimplant has been placed, it is left to heal and integrate with the jawbone for between sixweeks to six months. The bone tissue will grow and anchor itself into the microscopicrough surface of the implant.Refer: Doctor Appointment , Hospital Appointment
