Dental implants are a beautiful way to restore smiles and replace missing teeth, as well as improve the function of a misaligned bite. We will attach implant restorations such as dentures, porcelain crowns, or dental bridges to the top of artificial tooth roots made of titanium. Dr. Victor R. Siegel places the titanium implant and creates and attaches dental implant restorations at our office in Rockville, near Bethesda and Potomac. 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.

Benefits of Dental Implants
Perhaps the greatest benefit of dental implants is that they look and feel just like natural teeth. Because the titanium implant posts are surgically placed into the bone, they provide the necessary support for a dental bridge, crown, or full dentures. Conventional dental bridges and dentures often rest on the gum tissue, which can cause the tissue to become sore or recede with extensive wear. However, dental implants hold the restoration above the gums, which preserves the tissue and maintains the health of the mouth and jaw. Our Bethesda, Rockville, and Potomac-area patients who chose dental implants often report how thrilled they are with their implants, and how much they function just like their original teeth. Contact Victor R. Siegel, DDS, to discover the benefits dental implants and customized restorations can bring to your smile.
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 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 with missing teeth, 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.
