Dr. Robert Shimasaki, a cosmetic dentist in Pasadena, CA is now offering patients who currently rely on dentures, partial dentures, or bridges a more natural-looking alternative to restore function and aesthetics to their smile. With the use of dental implants, Dr. Shimasaki is able to provide patients with a strong, permanent smile that will last a lifetime.

While dentures can partially restore function for patients who have missing or failing teeth, they still restrict biting force and cause a lot of daily hassle with the necessary adhesive pastes and strips required to wear them. Additionally, many denture wearers have devices that are broken or loose, or cause pain when eating. With dental implants, patients can enjoy a smile that looks, feels, and performs just as natural teeth would.

“Dental implants really change the lives of our patients who have missing teeth or who are experiencing failing teeth,” said Dr. Robert Shimasaki, dental implants dentist in Pasadena, CA. “With this procedures, we’re able to give them a smile that’s just as good—or even better—than before they experienced tooth loss.”

The structure of a dental implant is very similar to a natural tooth. It consists of a small titanium screw that is surgically inserted into the jaw bone of the patient, and a customized porcelain crown that is attached to the screw once healed. Altogether, the implant’s design mimics a natural tooth and provides just as much biting force. With dental implants, patients are no longer restricted as to what foods they can eat with their new smile. Patients are also able to brush and floss their implants just like natural teeth, although the porcelain crowns are not susceptible to cavities.

Besides restoring function, dental implants do a lot to improve smile aesthetics. Dr. Shimasaki works closely with each dental implant patient to design crowns that are the shade, shape, and color they prefer to be attached to their implants.

In addition to dental implants, Dr. Shimasaki provides a variety of other services for local patients. He is a trained sedation dentist in Pasadena, CA for patients seeking a more comfortable and relaxing dental visit. Dr. Shimasaki is also a well-known pediatric dentist in Pasadena, CA and is a preferred provider of Invisalign for patients wanting a straighter smile without traditional braces.

With more than three decades of experience as a practicing dentist, Dr. Shimasaki is one of the most well-known dentists in the Pasadena area. He is committed to patient satisfaction and always staying up-to-date with the latest tools, techniques, and procedures in dentistry. He is a member of the Crown Council, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation, and the San Gabriel Valley Dental Society, among others.
