Scottsdale Dentists Highlight Several Chief Benefits of Dental Implants

Don Chiappetti, DDS and Jonathan Coombs, DMD of Scottsdale Smile Center discuss the numerous advantages of replacing one or more missing teeth with dental implants.

Scottsdale, AZ
— At Scottsdale Smile Center, Dr. Don Chiappetti and Dr. Jonathan Coombs provide an expansive array of general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry treatments to comprehensively address the needs and concerns of every patient seeking dental care at their practice. For individuals interested in replacing any number of missing and/or severely damaged teeth, the two dentists offer several effective solutions, though the most advantageous option is often dental implants.

For qualified candidates, Dr. Coombs states that dental implants are one of the most successful, aesthetic, and functional restorative dentistry treatments available today. Key benefits of dental implants can include:

  • A stronger, more durable alternative to bridges and dentures
  • Restoration of both form and function to teeth
  • Improvement in one’s ability to speak and chew
  • Improvement in the overall appearance of one’s smile
  • Permanent, natural-looking outcomes

In addition, dental implants can also be used to support dental bridges for the replacement of multiple teeth as well as to increase stability and decrease gum irritation for denture wearers.

Thanks to revolutionary Cone Beam X-Ray technology and computer guided surgery, Dr. Chiappetti notes that dental implant surgery can now be performed more successfully than ever. Though there is no guarantee implants will properly fuse to the patient’s jawbone, he says studies show a success rate of 95% for lower jaw implants and 90% for upper jaw implants five years after their implantation.

Ultimately, regardless of the many benefits of dental implants, Drs. Coombs and Chiappetti stress the importance of consulting a qualified dentist who has extensive experience in performing the procedure. “When placed incorrectly, there is a possibility for implants to fail,” says Dr. Chiappetti. “For this reason, it is imperative that you seek the expertise of a highly skilled and experienced dentist who can properly determine candidacy as well as perform treatment with the utmost safety and efficacy.”

About Don Chiappetti, DDS

After earning his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Arizona, Dr. Chiappetti obtained his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the esteemed University of Southern California. To further his education, he remains active in a number of renowned dental organizations, including the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association, and the Central Arizona Dental Society, among others. Outside of the office, Dr. Chiappetti lends his skills and expertise to humanitarian efforts such as Give Back a Smile and Christina Smile.

About Jonathan Coombs, DMD

After earning his dental degree from the University of Louisville, Dr. Coombs went on to complete hundreds of hours of continuing education, eventually earning the prestigious “Fellowship” status with the Academy of General Dentistry – an honor obtained by only three percent of all dentists. In addition, he maintains active membership in the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American Dental Association, and several other dental organizations. Dr. Coombs also gives back to the community by volunteering with Give Back a Smile and Christina Smile.

Dr. Chiappetti and Dr. Coombs are available for interview upon request.

Scottsdale Dentists Highlight the Comprehensive Smile Design Procedure

Scottsdale, AZ — At their practice, Scottsdale dentists Jonathan Coombs, DMD and Don Chiappetti, DDS offer an expansive variety of dental treatments and services, one of which involves a custom combination of procedures intended to comprehensively address the aesthetic and functional issues of their patients’ teeth. Known as a Smile Design, the two dentists say this individualized smile makeover process can be employed to restore damaged and/or missing teeth, diminish the appearance of a “gummy smile”, close gaps and spaces, correct misalignments, and more.

To determine the most effective procedures for each patient’s specific needs and goals, Dr. Chiappetti states that a thorough evaluation is first performed using state-of-the-art diagnostic technologies for enhanced visual precision. He notes that some of the most common treatment options employed alone or in conjunction with one another during a Smile Design include:

  • Teeth Whitening
  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Gum Reshaping
  • Cosmetic Bonding
  • Dental Implants
  • Invisalign®

Depending on the particular procedures ultimately utilized, Dr. Coombs indicates that the treatment process, recovery time, and cost of a Smile Design will vary. In general, he says, the most complex procedure being performed often dictates the length of treatment and recovery times for the entire makeover. For instance, he explains that the treatment and recovery of a Smile Design requiring teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and dental implants will typically be contingent on how long dental implant process takes. Regarding total cost, Dr. Coombs notes that his practice participates in various dental insurance plans and offers multiple financing options to help patients find a payment plan that meets their budget.

Ultimately, Drs. Chiappetti and Coombs say their goal for Smile Design procedures is to help patients achieve smiles they are proud to show off, and the two dentists encourage anyone interested in enhancing both the appearance and function of their teeth to seek a qualified dental professional to ensure they receive an optimal level of care.

Dr. Coombs obtained his dental degree from the University of Louisville and is one of only three percent of dentists to have earned “Fellowship” status with the Academy of General Dentistry by completing hundreds of continuing education hours. He also maintains active membership in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and several other esteemed dental associations, as well as multiple charity organizations.

Scottsdale Cosmetic Dentist Preserves Tooth Structure With Conservative Smile Makeover

scottsdale cosmetic dentistry,cosmetic dentist in scottsdale,smile makeover,invisalign

Scottsdale, AZ — According to a recent study from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), 99.7 percent of Americans believe a smile is an important social asset; however, over half of all American adults are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth. Dr. Jonathan Coombs, a dentist in Scottsdale, says the desire for a more aesthetic smile has led to a dramatic increase in cosmetic procedures at his practice. Thanks to an innovative approach and advanced techniques, Dr. Coombs says he has been able to help patients achieve a beautiful, radiant smile with minimal to no reshaping of the natural tooth structure.

At his Scottsdale cosmetic dentistry practice, Dr. Coombs says the majority of patients considering a smile makeover are concerned about how much tooth structure will be taken away during a procedure such as porcelain veneers or bonding. He says aggressive approaches to performing aesthetic dental treatments can be detrimental to the preservation of the natural foundation in a patient’s mouth, which is why he has adopted a conservative method for restoring smiles and maintaining the long-lasting health of teeth. By taking each patient’s individual dental composition into account and utilizing a varied assortment of minimal prep veneers, Dr. Coombs says he is able to create a custom and personalized plan for attaining a complete smile makeover.

“With the new materials available through modern cosmetic dentistry, we are now able to be super minimal with our treatments,” says Dr. Coombs. “We go into every situation trying to find the most conservative approach to treating a smile.”

To perform the conservative smile makeover, Dr. Coombs says he first shows the patient before-and-after photos during a comprehensive exam to help determine what their aesthetic outcome can be. Then, using a model of their teeth, he builds a prototype of what the final restorations will look like. He says if the necessary teeth are prepared to accommodate the prototype, patients can leave the office with an identical match of their future veneers. Dr. Coombs adds that another advantage of refining the prototype is that it allows his patients to get a sneak peek of the end result. After both he and the patient are satisfied with the prototype for the final veneer, he says the new veneers are duplicated using this refined prototype. Dr. Coombs adds the result is a finely-tuned smile built completely to the specifications of the patient and dentist, with minimal alteration to the natural tooth structure.

“Our desire is to help patients achieve a result they are happy with,” he says. “We want to make sure patients are 100 percent positive that the final look is what they’re going for.”

Because the conservative approach requires experienced precision and a qualified hand, Dr. Coombs says he urges patients to consult with a trained, dedicated cosmetic dentist before undergoing any procedure. Regardless of whether they are looking for porcelain veneers or Invisalign®, he says taking the time to extensively research one’s practice can help patients ensure they receive the highest quality care and the longest-lasting results.

A graduate of the University of Louisville Dental School, Dr. Jonathan Coombs has dedicated hundreds of hours to his continued education and has achieved the Fellowship status with the Academy of General Dentistry, an honor attained by less than 3 percent of dentists.

He also volunteers his time and services with the Give Back a Smile program for victims of domestic violence and Christina Smile, providing care for Boys and Girls Club kids.
