There are times teeth need to be removed either because of severe damage or disease. However, if you're missing teeth, Dr. Josephine Lee can restore your smile with dental implants (which she has been doing for more than 20 years).
A dental implant permanently replaces your missing tooth. It's the only restorative treatment available today that replaces both the missing root and tooth, letting you laugh, eat, and speak with full confidence again.
Dental implants are placed from a simple, surgical procedure. The implant is placed in the jawbone to serve as the tooth root. Then, an abutment is added to serve as the foundation for a beautiful and natural-looking crown.
Dr. Lee offers her patients high-quality crown restorations in partnership with the best labs and specialists.

Dental implants are a permanent restoration that will not cause any embarrassing slippage or uncomfortable chafing.
A dental implant is made of durable materials that will not deteriorate or decay. With proper dental care, they can last for decades.
Bone loss is the inevitable result of missing teeth. A dental implant helps to preserve the underlying bone and stimulate new growth.
Tooth and bone loss can result in wrinkles and a "sunk in" look to the face. Implants preserve bone and provide muscle support for a more youthful appearance.
