- Dental Implants
Lasting Tooth Replacements with Dental Implants!
It is impossible to give estimates without a visit; at one of our studios every case is different.
Missing teeth can be a nuisance, both cosmetically and functionally; you may feel self-conscious about a gap in your smile, and that gap will almost certainly cause problems with biting and chewing.
While there are several procedures dentists use to fill in gaps left by missing teeth, dental implants are by far the most natural-seeming in form and function. A dental implant is nearly indistinguishable from a natural tooth and can last a lifetime with proper maintenance.
We are the American Dental Studios are pleased to provide dental implants for patients at one of our studios.
What is a dental implant?
Dental implants are synthetic teeth that are attached to the jawbone, in much the same way that actual teeth are anchored. A dental implant consists of two basic parts – a metal anchor and a porcelain crown. The anchor is firmly implanted into the bone of the jaw, and then the crown, a restoration that appears identical to a normal tooth, is attached to the anchor. Bone and gums grow in around the implant. Since the resulting restoration is sturdy, durable, and natural-looking, we highly recommend dental implants.
Are dental implants
Are not hard to place.
Placing dental implants requires a specialized set of skills. Many dentists will "restore" dental implants, which means that they will attach the porcelain crown, but only after referring you out to a periodontist or oral surgeon who will place the implant into the jawbone. This can be very time-consuming, requiring several visits, often to different office locations.
We are the American Dental Studios however, are highly-skilled implant dentists, trained in the surgical placement of dental implants. This distinguishes us among other dentists in Rome, Italy; who have to refer patients for oral surgery. Instead, we can place the implant, as well as fabricate the crown, without the need to send you out to different offices. When you come to our American Dental Studio for a dental implant, we can do it all place the implant, attach the crown, and have you out and smiling.
Are dental implants expensive?
The cost of a dental implant is roughly equivalent to the cost of a fixed dental bridge, the older method of replacing a tooth. And, as dental implants have a much more natural look and feel than bridges, they provide excellent value for the investment.
- Porcelain Veneers
Our American Dental Studios is pleased to provide our patients one of the most advanced options in cosmetic dentistry.
Veneers allow a cosmetic dentist to completely make over a patient’s smile in just a few office visits, concealing flaws in the teeth.
If you are interested in having your smile made over with porcelain veneers, our team will work closely with you to help you achieve a smile that meets your aesthetic goals.
What Are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin ceramic shells that fit on the front surfaces of teeth. Since veneers completely cover flaws such as discoloration, minor chips and cracks, and crowding, they can sometimes be an alternative to teeth whitening and porcelain crowns. Veneers are made of translucent, tooth-colored porcelain that looks amazingly natural. Since veneers are custom-crafted to suit each patient’s unique appearance, no two sets of veneers are identical. Patients can enjoy beautiful, balanced smiles with teeth that look and feel natural.
- Root Canal Therapy
Our experienced root canal specialist provides root canal therapy at our offices. This treatment addresses problems with the root canal – the inner part of the tooth. The root canal contains tissue, known as the "pulp," that extends from the crown of the tooth down through the root to the tip of the tooth. When this tissue becomes damaged or diseased, this can cause pain, swelling, and even damage to the jawbone. When the pulp becomes infected, the tooth can be saved with root canal therapy.
This treatment involves replacing the damaged and infected pulp, sterilizing the empty pulp chamber and filling the empty pulp chamber with an artificial filling material, which prolongs the use of the tooth and eliminates the need for extraction.
The Root Canal Therapy Procedure
Root canal treatment is performed in a manner that is both painless as well as relaxing. Care is given to assure maximum comfort to the patient. To begin the treatment, the dentist administers an anaesthetic. When the mouth is fully numb, he removes the damaged pulp and cleans the root canal. Next, he fills the canal with a strong dental material. Finally, he covers the tooth with a temporary crown, which the patient will wear until the permanent version is ready.
- Teeth Whitening
Teeth tend to discolour over time. Many things can hasten this process; tobacco, coffee, and a range of other factors can cause your teeth to lose their lustrous white shine.
Our powerful cosmetic bleaching procedures can revive dull, yellowed, discoloured teeth by restoring the bright white colour that is their natural state.
We provide in-office teeth whitening, which can be performed in the utmost comfort in about an1/2 to1 hour.
Benefits of Teeth Whitening
American Dental Studios are pleased to offer in-office teeth whitening for our patients. Professional teeth whitening has many benefits. Unlike over-the-counter tooth bleaching products, which only remove surface stains, professional whitening solutions remove deep-set stains. This provides dramatic results, even for badly discoloured teeth. Patients who want a more subtle lightening effect can also benefit from professional teeth whitening, since the dentist can control the level of whitening. In addition, the bleaching solution is powerful yet gentle, and it minimizes gum sensitivity.
The Teeth Whitening Procedure
To begin the teeth whitening treatment, the dentist applies the whitening solution to the teeth. The dentist may apply the solution two or more times to completely whiten the teeth. With in-office teeth whitening, patients can leave our office after just one visit with dazzling white smiles.
- Porcelain Crowns
If teeth are severely damaged or discoloured, porcelain crowns can provide an excellent way to restore their function in a way that keeps your smile full and looking good. Crowns are made of porcelain and completely cover the damaged tooth.
They are highly durable and provide all the necessary support to restore the function and appearance of your teeth. Crowns can be used to repair nearly any tooth, provided that the root is intact.
If the root is not salvageable, or if the tooth is so severely damaged that it needs to be extracted, dental implants are the best option for restoration, since they replace the root of the tooth.

- Restorative Dentistry with Colour Matching Composites using the latest bonding techniques
Tooth-coloured composite fillings. Teeth with cavities can now be restored cosmetically with tooth-coloured composite dental fillings. These fillings blend beautifully with the surrounding teeth, and do not have the health hazards associated with traditional mercury amalgam metal fillings. This the newest generation of colour matching composite fillings are especially so important when doing or replacing old filling in your front teeth.
If you have a toothache or other problem with your teeth, it is best to get it taken care of immediately, before the problem can worsen. To restore unhealthy teeth, our team at American Dental Studios offer a full range of restorative dentistry treatments. Restorative dentistry addresses numerous dental issues.
We specialize in the replacement your old metal fillings; “the traditional mercury amalgam metal fillings”, which obviously contain mercury with the latest generation of colour matching light composite fillings. When you smile you will even have trouble remembering where your old metal amalgam fillings were after we replace them with the latest generation of colour matching composite filling materials.
As Tom Clarkson a scientist in the Department of Environmental Medicine at the University of Rochester in New York said, “What we're concerned about is the vapour that comes off the amalgam as you are chewing, as you breathe through your mouth, and that's absorbed into the lung. And from there it gets into the rest of the body.” He's been studying the health effects of mercury for more than 40 years.
