How Dental Implants Mimic Your Natural Teeth Fort Mill, SC
Dental Implants Fort Mill SC

Whether you are replacing your favorite recliner or trying to replicate a famous painting, it can be very difficult to recreate the original version. However, when it comes to replacing a tooth, modern dentistry offers a solution that is remarkably close to the real thing. Dental implants are a gold standard in restorative dentistry due to their valued ability to replicate a natural tooth in function, form and feel.

What Sets Implants Apart

Dental implants certainly aren’t the only way to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Bridges, partials and dentures can also provide prosthetic teeth to fill in the gaps of your smile. However, implant dentistry takes teeth replacement to a whole new level – a deeper level that replaces the structure of the tooth above and below the gum line. A dental implant is distinguished for its ability to provide an artificial tooth root, which means your prosthetic tooth can achieve a level of stability and function just like your natural teeth.

Dental implants involve a titanium screw or post that is surgically placed into the underlying jawbone. Over time, the implant fuses to the surrounding bone to form a secure “root” for your prosthetic tooth. The abutment piece of the implant rests above the gum line and secures a crown, bridge or denture to your dental implant. These are restorations that can be customized in shape, color and size to match your natural smile.

What Can Implants Mean for You

Dental implants not only look and feel like real teeth, but they function like real teeth too. With implants, you won’t have to worry with extra maintenance regimes or fear that your fake teeth will fall out or come loose during everyday life.

By choosing dental implants, you can enjoy the following “real teeth” benefits:

  • No dietary restrictions
  • No special cleaning products or adhesive creams
  • No bone loss or premature facial aging
  • No worries that others know you have fake teeth

At Gold Hill Dentistry, we take tooth loss seriously. While it is always preferable to retain your natural teeth for a lifetime, we are proud to offer dental implants for patients that don’t find that possible. Regardless of the reason you have lost your real teeth, we can help. Dental implants can be your closest replica to your original smile!

4.4 / 5.0

Based on 97 reviews


"When I moved I tried another dental practice. Mistake. Now I drive an hour to still use Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone from the administrative staff to the dentist are professional, kind, and good at what they do."


"This was my first appointment with Gold Hill Dentistry so I didn’t exactly know what to expect. However prior to my visit I did google their reviews which were exceptional. That being said, my first visit certainly align with their online reviews! Gold Hill Dentistry’s staff were warm, professional but personable, and they made me feel very comfortable from the moment I entered their office and throughout the entire time services were performed. My cleaning results were great and my teeth and gums felt wonderful! I look forward to a long relationship with Gold Hill Dentistry!"


"As soon as you walk in you are greeted like family. Very clean, homie feeling office. Staff and Dr. Setty super friendly, kind and professional."


"Gold Hill Dentistry is the absolute best! From the front desk, to the hygienists, to the doctor, they were all great. They bent over backwards to accommodate my special health situation and urgent scheduling needs. And the drilling/filling they did was the quickest and most painless I've ever had. Don't think twice about making them your new go-to for dental work."


"Office Staff, dental hygienists, and the dentists are all wonderful. Always friendly, helpful, professional and excellent. With so many "doc in the box" dental centers popping up, Gold Hill is a welcome exception where personal service and attention matter. (I should mention too, that the service does not come at premium cost - they take insurance and their rates are competitive and reasonable). Highly recommend Gold Hill Dentistry."


"I really like Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone is very very friendly and helpful. They are really concerned about your care."
