Missing teeth can have an impact on daily life as well as oral health and your overall sense of confidence in your appearance. Dental Arts of Darien has an in house ceramic lab for the custom fabrication of our dental restorations. This enables Dr. Pereira to have better oversight in the process as well as the ability to provide a more accurate and high quality result.
At Dental Arts of Darien, Dr. Pereira provides several options for replacing missing teeth, and often recommends dental implants for the many benefits they offer:
- 95% or higher success rate among patients
- Improved bone and gum health (compared to alternative restorations)
- Avoids degradation of healthy teeth (as in conventional bridgework)
- Improves appearance of smile and lower face
- Patients can enjoy a healthy diet without restrictions
- No worry of slippage or dentures “falling out”
Above all, dental implants provide the most natural looking and functioning tooth replacement that requires no daily maintenance and years of comfortable smiles.

About Dental Implants
A dental implant is a bio-compatible titanium post that is surgically implanted by Dr. Pereira into your jaw bone, replacing the root of a missing tooth.
When fully integrated with the bone, the dental implant will provide stability and support for a replacement tooth. A dental implant can be used to support a dental crown for a single missing tooth or a denture to replace all of your missing teeth.
Dental implants function much like a natural tooth and provide a lifetime of use with good oral hygiene. With a dental implant, if the dental crown becomes damaged or worn, it can be easily replaced without the need for a complex procedure or additional surgery.
The Dental Implant Process
Dr. Pereira will create your unique treatment plan and discuss all aspects of the dental implant process during your consultation. Dr. Pereira will complete all phases of your treatment in the comfort of his Darien dentist office.
Dental implants are a multi step process beginning with the surgical implantation of the tiny titanium post into the jaw which will both support your new prosthetic tooth and act like a tooth root, stimulating healthy bone growth.
After the healing process is complete, Dr. Pereira will attach a dental crown, bridge or denture to permanently restore aesthetics and function to your smile. Your restoration will look and function the same as your natural teeth. You can brush and floss normally. Routine dental visits will ensure long term health and function of the dental implant.
Dental Implant FAQs
How much do dental implants cost?
The cost of dental implants is determined by the number and location of implants, as well as your overall dental health. Dr. Pereira will meet with you to review all of your options as well as the cost of procedures prior to treatment.
Most dental implant procedures are not covered by insurance, however, we will submit the necessary billing and documentation to your insurance company to allow for the maximum reimbursement. We also offer flexible payment options and financing with Care Credit to help make dental implants more affordable.
Are Dental Implants Right For Me?
In order to be a candidate for dental implants, patients should be healthy enough for surgery, have healthy gums and adequate bone structure to support the implant. Dr. Pereira will perform a comprehensive evaluation and recommend the various treatment options available to you.
What is the best choice for missing teeth?
Whether you have one or several missing teeth, there are many options for replacement. Dr. Pereira will evaluate your oral health condition and help you choose which replacement option is best for you. In many cases, a dental implant is the best choice for someone who wants a long lasting, worry free solution. Dental implants give patients the most lifelike replacement for missing teeth with the ability to eat, drink, speak and smile confidently without any restrictions.
How long does a dental implant last?
With proper care and maintenance, you can expect your dental implant to last a lifetime. During routine visits, Dr. Pereira will check your dental implant to be sure there are no signs of wear.
