Implant placement is a very sensitive cosmetic procedure that requires a lot of cosmetic training for optimum placement. When placed incorrectly, the metal might show through the gum tissue causing a non-cosmetic appearance. Dr. Samo will ensure that your implant will match your natural teeth and give you the best results possible!
