Many patients visit our dental practice, J Foster Weems DDS, to get dental implants. Our expert dentist, Dr. J. Foster Weems, is happy to be able to provide attractive and perfectly placed Newport Beach CA dental implants for our patients.

Newport Beach CA dental implants are a very popular tooth replacement method at our office because a dental implants look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. Our dentist will assess whether or not you are a good candidate for dental implants, by determining the health and thickness of your jawbone. Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for this treatment, he will proceed with the dental implant treatment. Our dentist will determine the exact location for placement of the titanium dental implant root. A titanium dental implant root will then be surgically inserted into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. There is then a healing period of several months during which time the jawbone will fully heal and the new dental implant root will completely fuse to the jawbone. This fusion process is what allows dental implants to be so secure and steady in your mouth. Once the healing has completed, a beautiful porcelain crown will be permanently attached to the top of the dental implant root. At this point, your dental implant will be complete and you will be able to eat, speak, and smile with total confidence, and in total comfort. All you will need to do to take care of your dental implant is to practice excellent oral hygiene. You will need to thoroughly brush and floss your teeth on a daily basis, and have regular dental cleanings every six months.

Have you been looking in the mirror and wishing there were something that could be done to correct your smile? If so, there are a lot of reasons to be happy. At J Foster Weems DDS there are many things that can be done to improve the look of your smile and make cosmetic improvements to your teeth. Our dentist in Newport Beach is able to provide you with many treatment options, including the cost-effective option of dental veneers.

Our expert dentist in Newport Beach is Dr. J. Foster Weems. Our practice delivers exemplary patient care in the areas of general, restorative and cosmetic dentistry. When patients have purely cosmetic problems with their smiles, they can generally be fixed in a cost-effective way through the use of porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are for cosmetic treatment only; they do not strengthen or return function to teeth. A porcelain veneer is actually a thin shell that is made to cover only the front of a tooth. But if your teeth have cosmetic problems, like these, dental veneers can be an excellent solution: chipped teeth; teeth with surface cracks in the enamel; short teeth; teeth with severe discoloration that cannot be improved with conventional dental bleaching methods; teeth with gaps between them; and teeth with minor alignment problems.

At J Foster Weems DDS, our dentist in Newport Beach provides dental veneers that help create a beautiful new smile for his patients. Dental veneers are made of porcelain. They are color-matched to the adjacent teeth so no one is able to detect that the veneers are not your permanent teeth. If your teeth need to be strengthened as well, our dentist can provide you with porcelain dental crowns which will not only restore the look of your teeth, but restore the function as well. Porcelain dental veneers are permanently cemented to your teeth. When this is done, a small amount of enamel is generally removed, so it is important that a dentist skilled in providing dental veneers performs the procedure. If you would like to meet with Dr. Weems regarding dental veneers or any other dental procedure, contact us today at our practice of J Foster Weems DDS for an appointment.

When you have teeth that need replacement, you have several options to choose from. There are fixed and removable dentures and dental bridges, and today’s most popular solution for teeth replacement, dental implants. If you are in need of Newport Beach dental implants, contact our practice of J Foster Weems DDS and see exactly what can be done for you.

Dr. J. Foster Weems has been dedicated to serving the oral health needs of our patients at our Newport Beach office for many years. Over the years, we have seen a growing interest in and requests for dental implants to serve as teeth replacement for our patients. Newport Beach dental implants are popular for many reasons including the fact that they are the closest thing to natural teeth. When a missing tooth is replaced with a dental implant it is as though the person has their actual permanent tooth restored. To begin with, the implant looks perfectly natural, just like your other permanent teeth. The implant is also as strong and functional as a permanent tooth, giving you the ability to be able to eat anything you want. Finally, if well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing, and by periodic trips to the dental office for cleaning, our Newport Beach dental implants can well last a lifetime.

Our Newport Beach dental implants are created in two steps. First, the titanium root portion must be surgically inserted into your jaw bone. (Our doctor will first need to determine that your jaw bone is healthy enough to hold the implant.) Then your jaw bone must heal, and the implant must fuse to the jaw bone during this time. This usually can take up to several months. Then, once the healing is complete, the top porcelain crown portion is permanently attached to the titanium root. At this point the implant procedure is completed, and you are left with a wonderful new tooth, or teeth, that act and feel just like your permanent teeth. Should you not want to have Newport Beach dental implants to replace missing teeth, there are many other options that Dr. Weems can discuss with you. If you would like to make an appointment to meet with Dr. Weems regarding your individual dental situation, contact our office today and make an appointment.
