Also known as the smile zone, the esthetic zone is the area in the front of your mouth that is the most visible when you smile. If you’re missing a tooth in this area, it’s critical that a tooth root (implant) and restoration (crown) be precisely positioned.

Are You a Candidate for “Esthetic Zone” Dental Implants?
We’ll evaluate your oral health and make sure there is sufficient jawbone strength needed to support an implant. Bone grafts are common procedures that may be suggested to ensure that you have this support for a future dental implant and crown restoration.

Front teeth restorations are your most natural-looking, best long-term solutions if a front tooth is missing or beyond saving. These dental implants, due to their location, may have unique demands. You should only trust a board-certified periodontist, like the doctors at the Pennsylvania Center for Dental Implants & Periodontics, for these strategic placements. We utilize today’s latest techniques to ensure these smile zone teeth will perfectly match the rest of your teeth in terms of fit, color, size and shape.
