Why People Love Cresta Bella Dental & Braces

Alvina M.
Cresta Bella is the sister location of Huebner Smiles where I first started seeing Dr. Bustos. I’ve been seeing her for some years now and she is so pleasant to work with and very gentle. She cares about her patients and makes you feel comfortable in her care. All of the staff is super nice and accommodating here. I had a last min urgent need and Cresta Bella was able to get me in that same day for a visit. I highly recommend if you’re looking for a new dentist!

Cresta Bella Dental is an amazing office. Your above and beyond experience begins the moment you walk in the door and are greeted by Kaelyn and Rocio. The efficiency of their scheduling gets you right in on time. Jan and Kevian followed with their expertise, before you are treated to the delightful Dr. Bustos. She is professional and friendly, thorough in her evaluation, and very personable. The entire experience warrants a 5-star rating! Very highly recommended! Thank you for taking such good care of us!

I went to my first appointment at Cresta Bella for a cleaning and hygienist Kieben was completely awesome. He was very gentle, thorough, professional, and just a very cool guy! My dentist Dr. Bustos whom I’ve seen in the past at a different clinic is always absolutely phenomenal and amazing. She always provides the most beneficial recommendations. Was a great experience for sure.

Renew Your Smile with Dental Implants

A Permanent Solution

If you're suffering from missing or decaying teeth, dental implants offer a durable, more permanent solution. Unlike other tooth replacement options, implants integrate with your jawbone, providing a stable foundation for a new tooth that looks, feels, and functions just like your natural teeth.

Improve Your Oral Health and Overall Well-being

Dental implants not only enhance your smile but also improve your oral health. They prevent bone loss, maintain facial structure, and eliminate the discomfort associated with missing teeth. By choosing implants, you're not only investing in your smile but also in your overall quality of life.

The Dental Implant Process: A Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Initial Consultation: We start with a comprehensive evaluation to determine if dental implants are right for you. This includes X-rays and 3D imaging to assess your oral health.
  2. Tooth Extraction (if necessary): If an existing tooth needs removal, we'll perform a gentle extraction and may place a bone graft to prepare for the implant.
  3. Implant Placement: The implant, a small titanium post, is placed into the jawbone and allowed to heal and integrate.
  4. Temporary Tooth Placement: To enhance the aesthetics and function, a temporary tooth may be placed during the healing process.
  5. Final Restoration: After healing, a custom-made abutment and crown are attached to the implant, completing your smile transformation.

The Benefits of Choosing Dental Implants

  • Durability: Implants are designed to last many years, often a lifetime, with proper care.
  • Improved Appearance: Custom-made to match your natural teeth, implants enhance your smile's aesthetics.
  • Eat What You Love: No more dietary restrictions. Enjoy your favorite foods with confidence.
  • Natural Speech: Implants allow you to speak naturally and comfortably.
  • Preservation of Facial Structure: Prevents bone loss and maintains the natural shape of your face.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small, titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as a stable foundation for replacement teeth. They are designed to mimic the root of a natural tooth and can support crowns, bridges, or dentures.

How long do dental implants last?

With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. They are a long-term solution designed to integrate with your jawbone, providing durability and stability.

Are dental implants painful?

The procedure for placing dental implants is typically performed under local anesthesia and sedation, making it comfortable and painless. Post-surgical discomfort is usually mild and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

How do I take care of my dental implants?

Caring for dental implants is similar to caring for natural teeth. This includes regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental checkups and cleanings. Good oral hygiene is essential to ensure the longevity of your implants.

Can anyone get dental implants?

Most people who are healthy enough to undergo routine dental extractions or oral surgery can be considered for dental implants. However, certain medical conditions and lifestyle factors may affect eligibility. A thorough evaluation is necessary to determine if implants are right for you.

How much do dental implants cost?

The cost of dental implants varies depending on several factors, including the number of implants and the complexity of the case. At Cresta Bella Dental & Braces, we offer flexible financing options to make dental implants more accessible.

The dental implant process involves several steps, including implant placement, healing, and restoration. The total time can vary from a few months to over a year, depending on individual healing and treatment plans.

Will dental implants look and feel like my natural teeth?

Yes, dental implants are designed to look, feel, and function like natural teeth. They provide a strong and stable foundation for replacement teeth, enhancing both the aesthetics and functionality of your smile.

Are dental implants covered by insurance?
