If you are experiencing the devastating consequences of tooth loss due to extraction, injury, or illness, and wish to restore your healthy and vibrant smile with dental implants, you may wish to consider several key factors when selecting a dentist or dental surgeon, such as:
- Is there a board-certified dental surgeon near me?
- Does the practice offer same day restorations?
- Am I able to have all of my dental needs met in one location?
- What do other patients have to say about the practice?
Dr. Sameet Koppikar, at Biltmore Dental Center, is a board-certified, award-winning Doctor of Dental Surgery who has been recognized as a Top Dentist by the Consumer’s Research Council of America. With extensive training in cosmetic dentistry with world-class peer physicians, Dr. Koppikar is known for his artful and gentle dentistry.
Dental implants are placed during a surgical procedure, which inserts a titanium post into the jawbone, replacing the root of the tooth, and providing the greatest stability and function of the new tooth. The bone grows around the post, strengthening the structure for remaining teeth, and preventing loss of bone or shifting of surrounding teeth. Once the bone and post are securely fused together, an abutment and a natural-looking porcelain crown are added, restoring the visible portion of the tooth.
Biltmore Dental Center offers CEREC technology, which allows Dr. Koppikar to custom-design your crown in the office, on the same day as your visit. CEREC same day restorations eliminate the need for an additional visit to make impressions that are sent to an offsite laboratory, reducing the time that it will take to complete your smile makeover. CEREC uses precise, computer-aided design and manufacturing and intricately carves your perfectly matched porcelain crown. Without messy materials to bite down on for the impression, your digital image is captured with a small 3D camera.
Dr. Koppikar provides a complete array of advanced dentistry to meet the needs of patients of all ages, including family, cosmetic, restorative, preventative, sedation, and emergency dentistry, as well as alignment treatments such as Invisalign, braces, and Six Month Smiles. There is no need to travel to multiple practices to achieve the smile of your dreams and optimal oral health.
In addition to being recognized as a Top Doctor, and nominated by peers for the Doctor’s Choice Awards in 2014, Dr. Koppikar is consistently ranked in the top tiers in patient reviews and testimonials. Find out what has our patients smiling brightly by visiting our reviews and Smile Gallery.
