What is a Dental Implant?
Missing one tooth? Multiple teeth? Dental implants take care of it all!
Are you tired of constantly hiding your mouth because of the embarrassment of missing teeth? At Smiles by Design, our innovative dentist can replace your missing teeth with dental implants. While we offer multiple revolutionary implant services, let’s cover the basics of what an implant actually is.
A Dental Implant Consists of Three Parts:
A permanent post is placed within the jawbone. This post acts as the root of your new tooth, which makes it stable, functional, and durable. Then, the jawbone will start the healing process and fuse with the post.
Once healed, Dr. Keller will attach an abutment, which connects the tooth to the post.
Place the Crown
The crown is the last piece of the puzzle to your new smile. With their artistic eyes, our Kirkland dental team will place a beautiful restoration, blending it in with your natural smile. You’ll walk out of our office with a gorgeous, beautiful smile.

Dr. Keller is at the forefront of new advances in dentistry to ensure you receive enhanced comfort during your treatment and long-lasting restorations that look natural.
- Air Polisher No more of that nasty grit! A controlled jet of water, air, and fine powder polishes your teeth, reaching deep into periodontal pockets. It is far more efficient than traditional scrape and polish treatment – and much more comfortable. It reduces teeth sensitivity and encourages re-mineralization of damaged teeth.
- Ozone Therapy Ozone therapy can be used to heal and disinfect. Stubborn infections such as those around root canal teeth and cavitations can be quickly healed with ozone. Bleaching is also enhanced by ozone treatments.
- The Wand Anesthesia Dr. Keller’s guests like his use of the “Wand” computer-aided anesthesia. It is a very comfortable way to achieve numbness, removing what is usually the most anxiety-inducing part of the appointment. Most people don’t even notice when he has done it!
- 3D Printing and Computer-Assisted Design We use Computer-Assisted Design & Manufacture (CAD/CAM) to mill crowns, bridges, and more from 3D scans. Dr. Keller is not only at the forefront of this technological revolution but is also traveling the world to instruct others on his ground-breaking techniques.
