Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants
Missing teeth can affect your confidence and make functions such as chewing and speaking difficult.
Dr. Victor Siegel offers dental implants, a solution that can restore both the appearance and the function of your smile.
So why should you consider dental implants?
Let's take a look at how dental implants work...
Dental Implants Are a Reliable Solution
Implant Treatment with Dr. Siegel
We will attach implant restorations such as dentures, porcelain crowns, or dental bridges to the top of artificial tooth roots made of titanium. Dr. Siegel places the titanium implant and creates and attaches dental implant restorations. Dental implants could be a great option for you if you are missing teeth but have good oral health.
If you are a good candidate for the procedure, Dr. Siegel (and in selected advanced cases a trusted, qualified oral surgeon to whom you may be referred) will place your implants into the jaw bone, and when appropriate healing has occurred, you will return to our office for your restorations. Contact our cosmetic dentistry practice in Rockville, serving Potomac, Bethesda, and beyond, to learn more about dental implants, or to schedule your consultation with our experienced implant dentistry team.

Restorations for Dental Implants
We offer several different types of restorations that can be attached to your dental implants. Dental bridges, full/partial dentures, or dental crowns can all be mounted on top of the dental implant post. At our office, we are able to customize these restorations and permanently attach them to your implants. In fact, if you decide to use porcelain crowns with your dental implants, we can create them in a single appointment using our CEREC® system.
CEREC® Porcelain Crowns
Most dentists have to send specifications for their porcelain implant-supported crowns (including size, color, and translucency) to a ceramicist or an outside lab. The CEREC® system allows us to create those porcelain crowns in our office. Our top-quality ceramic material can be shaded to match your smile so that the new porcelain crown will be virtually undetectable next to your original teeth. In just one visit to our Rockville office near Bethesda and Potomac, your dental implants can be placed with customized CEREC® porcelain crowns.
Candidates for Dental Implants
Dental implants may be the ideal solution for those patients who required extractions, but who otherwise have strong gums and good oral health. Gum tissue must also be healthy so that implants heal properly in the jaw. If there is not enough existing bone structure or gum tissue in which to place the implants, there are some procedures that may augment the amount of bone or improve the health of gum tissue. Dr. Siegel can assess your candidacy and evaluate your budget during a personalized consultation and review your treatment timeline.
