Dental Implants

Dental Implant Placement and Restoration in Alamosa, CO

Missing one tooth or several impacts not only your smile but your overall health as well. Dr. Sarah Nazeri and her team at Blanca Peak Dental Center are committed to restoring smiles throughout the San Luis Valley. We work with you throughout the process and provide both placement and restoration of dental implants in Alamosa and the neighboring areas.


What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants consist of three main parts: the abutment, which functions as an anchor for replacements; the restoration, which is made to match naturally healthy teeth in appearance and strength; and the implant post, which replaces the root with biocompatible titanium and provides a solid foundation.

When you lose teeth, an infection can occur and, over time, the jawbone weakens from lack of proper chewing. Dental implants, along with their accompanying restorations, return function and jaw strength, allowing you to chew normally while preventing future oral health issues.

Treatment at Blanca Peak Dental Center

After Dr. Nazeri has performed a full examination, she will be able to determine if you are a good candidate for implants. In cases where the jawbone is deficient or preparatory procedures are needed, our dentist performs bone grafting, sinus lifts, and ridge modification. Our office features a 3D cephalometric imager, which provides us with detailed scans of your current oral structure and helps us determine a precise course of action.

We typically place and restore dental implants at two different appointments, giving appropriate time to heal before the restoration is placed. This can take a few months at most, depending on individual circumstances. Our dentist provides temporary replacements that will allow you to eat and live normally in the interim. Once Dr. Nazeri has added the restorations, you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite foods and smile both comfortably and confidently.

Our Implant Restoration Options

We offer several aesthetically pleasing restoration options, which are crafted at a trusted local lab. These restorations come in a variety of materials, including zirconia, porcelain (which is fused to metal), and high noble gold. Gold restorations are usually placed in the rear of the mouth, while the more natural-looking replacements are favored in the front.

  • Crowns – Our crowns, depending on which material you choose, are designed to resemble natural teeth. In any case, they are built not only with aesthetics in mind, but also function.
  • Bridges – Unlike conventional bridges, implant-supported dental bridges do not require the alteration of healthy teeth. These prosthetics simply attach to the implant post, filling the gaps in your smile.
  • Dentures – For edentulous patients, implant-supported dentures are a valuable replacement option as they do not slide out of position or impair speech.
