What are implants?
Dental implants are the understructure, like abutments on a bridge, which hold the replacement teeth. Implants are a tool that can be used for a variety of applications. They provide superior stability, convenience, and preservation of your jawbone.
- A single tooth can be replaced by a single implant, topped with a beautiful porcelain crown.
- For a series of missing teeth, three or four implants can be placed, supporting several replacement teeth.
- If all of the teeth in an arch are missing, six or eight implants can be placed and connected, creating the support structure for an entire new set of teeth.
- Denture wearers can enjoy better retention and eliminate adhesives with only two to four implants. The denture snaps in and out for easy cleaning, but remains stable when eating, smiling, and speaking.
- Implant retention is an option available for our Immediate Dentures.

Dr. Gordon KentReviewed by Paulie Nguyen
I would recommend this place to anyone..I was such a coward and embarrassed about my teeth and really didn't want to go to any other dentists. Smile center caters to coward and they have changed my life forever. Thank you so much.
I have a great deal of anxiety in having dental procedures, even very easy things like routine cleanings. Everyone at the Smile Center made me feel as comfortable as I could and put my nerves at ease. My recent dental work was completely painless, and the doctor, as well as her assistants, were kind and gentle. ~ Saram.
The staff at the Smile Center is very friendly. They always make sure to return my phone call as soon as possible. They've never left me waiting. I was glad that they were located in a safe neighborhood. They've never rushed my teeth cleaning. They always go above and beyond to make sure my teeth look and feel fantastic. They remind me of appointments with a card in the mail and a phone call, which is very helpful. I used to be a little dental phobic, but they calmed my fears. I always recommend them to people who are looking for a new dental clinic. ~ ELAINE M.
Continue the excellent work. I felt very welcomed and they showed me that you truly care. I felt for the first time very secure and safe being at the dentist. ~ Roumilda C.
I am always pleased with my appointments at the Smile Center. Cindy the hygienist is the best. Both my husband and I are patients here and I would encourage anyone who is looking for a great dentist to be seen at the Smile Center. ~ Nancy D.
