Dental Implants

If you have loose teeth you are most likely looking for a way to recover the ability to do simple things like eat anything you want or smile with confidence. Dental implants can change your life for the better and give you back the life you had when your teeth were healthy.

Whether you smoke, have gum disease, have dentures, or even have missing teeth you can still have dental implants safely placed in your mouth. In fact, dental implants can replace your missing teeth and they can even support the dentures in your mouth and give them stability.

People often ask, what are dental implants?” Quite simply they are titanium posts that are inserted or placed into the jaw bone. What happens next is that the implant bonds to the existing bone and this is what gives it a solid foundation.

“Do these replacement teeth look, feel and function like regular teeth?”
The answer is “YES”. In addition, the implants themselves will help to prevent bone loss that normally occurs when teeth are missing in one’s mouth.

Before & After Photos Showing Some Of Our Dental Implants Patients

“How long does it take until you are back to normal and enjoying all of your favorite foods and smiling with confidence?”
The answer is that this can all happen in one day because after the implant is placed you can go back to your normal activities the same day and have very little to no discomfort at all.

The fact is that with dental implants you will never be without teeth. furthermore, if you have dentures they will be adjusted the SAME day to fit over the area. Then after you have healed which typically takes about 3-4 months, you will receive a replacement tooth.

The procedure can be done with local anesthetics, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), or even sedation for those patients who experience anxiety.

Here Is What Our Patients Have To Say

I never thought I would find my way back in a dentist office, but SHINE DENTAL is the place for me…your teeth are so important to your overall health and as a Diabetic, it is very important to stay on a dental routine.Yes…This is very CRAZY to say…… but I LOVE SHINE DENTAL! For many years I have stayed away from the dentist, due to several bad experiences and necessity made me go to Shine Dental. I was so afraid and truly reluctant but I needed emergency service. WOW…I have to tell you, I was treated like a ‘SUPER STAR”. The Team there is so pleasant and understanding. They are very patient and detailed in explaining what they are doing for you. I was so pleased with the service, I have been back multiple times. Dr Yanover and Kayla took care of my fillings and a crown. Daniella has done my deep cleanings with minimal to no irritation. Dr Mittle just did an implant for me, yesterday, that barely took any time to do. The process was done so well, that I went to work straight from having the implant done. Let me not forget Jerry, she I believe, is the office manager, (I am not sure) but she is a insurance GURU. She is such a great person to deal with regarding explanation of benefits but overall, just a really nice lady. So why would you want to go anywhere else when you are treated like Royalty. Thank you SHINE DENTAL TEAM…

Dr. Weinstein is great. He is very knowledgeable and good at what he does. I have a family of bad teeth and Dr. Weinstein has handle all instances with great care and pride. He is like an artist and likes to get it so it looks and feels good. He keeps my smile healthy and looking good. He has given me a crown, a bridge and an implant. All have been great, no problem and eating is good. His staff has also whitened my teeth and takes care of my daughter and son. For different procedures he has explained the options if there are options and explains the difference so I can make a knowledgeable decision on his recommendations. He gave my daughter veneers and they came out great. His staff is great and at times busy but that to me is a good thing. Like a good restaurant. The office manager has handled all the insurance claims and billings without issue. His dental assistants are very good too. Everyone is very thorough, quick and knowledgeable as well. Shine Dental is highly recommended by me and my family.

I am impressed. I always like going to a medical professional that was older than myself, for some reason this gave me confidence. I can say without a doubt the experience with Dr. Mittle even though he looks quite young, has been great. He seems to really know his stuff. Between him & the people at Shine, I could not have expected a better outcome (including price) for my dental implant. Everything was explained to me in a simple language that I understood. The first implant is done & I expect the second implant to be done in 2 - 3 months.
