Dental implants are a durable, convenient and long-term solution that act as natural teeth and with proper care can last a lifetime. Typically the implant comes in limited shapes, but Start Smiling customizes implant sizing to your specific requirements, and forms the teeth with high-end quality porcelain or zirconia. The implant is positioned into the jawbone behind the visible gumline in order to allow a replacement tooth or a bridge to be mounted in that area.

Dr Paul Petrungaro’s unparalleled implant success rates are so predictable, that Start Smiling Dental Implant Centers can offer an unprecedented 5-year implant warranty.
Over 3 to 6 months, the jawbone heals and the implant secures in place as the bone fuses around the implant.
An abutment (connector post) is then attached to the dental implant to hold the crown (replacement tooth). For multiple teeth replacement, abutments may be used for a bridge or denture.
An impression of your mouth is made to create a model of your teeth. It is used to create your new crown, bridge or implant supported denture. The crown, bridge or denture is then attached to the abutment(s). By filling in missing teeth, the bridge and denture prevent health problems that would occur if left empty. Problems such as, a deteriorating jawbone, and the inability to properly chew and digest your food, which can lead to more significant health problems. Dental implants preserve and increase bone growth as well.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
*dental implants prices are exclusive of any insurance plans, which may alter cost
The cause of your missing tooth or teeth could have been an accident or lost to a disease, but whatever the reason the fact of the matter is that you have to replace them. Dental implants are the best option to do, but the final costs can be quite pricey. Here at Start Smiling Dental Implant Centers, we want you to get the treatment you deserve. We are happy to meet with you to discuss dental implants, including the procedure, the costs and dental implant insurance coverage during your consultation with us at our Chicago area practice.
Many other offices take several months and even over a year for dental implants to be completed. At Start Smiling Dental Implant Centers, we use advanced techniques and modern technology to get your dentistry completed for you quickly, often times with ONE surgical procedure, without aggressive techniques, and completed work within 3-5 months! However, this operation does require time and focus. Materials, implants, crowns, and other factors make up the price that you pay.
Discounts are given when paying by cash or check and when multiple implants are placed, the cost per implant generally goes down. Payment plans are also available. Bridges and dentures are cheaper alternatives, but the price to maintain them over time will add up and go over the initial price of the implants over time. Dental implants are a much better quality and are built to last.
