Teeth are needed not only so we have a beautiful smile. They are integral to our health as much as they are to our self-image. If we cannot chew sufficiently, the food we eat are not adequately broken down for digestion. This can upset the stomach. If we lose teeth and they are not replaced, our smile has gaps. If teeth are not replaced, we may lose bone structure that eventually causes the face to sink inward.

Dr. Shivani Gupta is proud of her focus in implant dentistry. Her extensive training in very specific studies enables her to provide the results you need and deserve. There is nothing like dental implants when it comes to replicating natural oral structure. The reason for the continual success of this treatment is that the implants replace missing roots. When cared for, implants can last your lifetime.

When you choose Peninsula Dental Implant Center, you can count on care that is tailored to your unique needs. We recognize that though you may want the highest standard of tooth replacement, your smile, and your bone structure, are not like anyone else’s. Dr. Gupta plans single-tooth or multiple-tooth replacement around each individual patient, continually achieving excellent results. Even if your needs are to stabilize a full denture, our team has the skill set to get you smiling confidently again.

Historically, one or a few teeth may have been replaced with a dental bridge. When bridgework is performed, we must modify the structure of two healthy teeth. These teeth are crowned in order to stabilize the artificial tooth that sits in the empty space between them. Today, we can replace one tooth, two, three, or more with dental implants without having to rely on remaining teeth for support.

Dental implant treatment can fix your smile if you have multiple teeth missing in one area or if you have single teeth missing throughout different areas of the mouth. Implants are solitary prosthetics that are individually placed as needed. They may be topped with a crown, bridge, or may be used to stabilize full dentures on the upper or lower arch. With efficiency and the use of up-to-date imaging, Dr. Gupta achieves excellent results.

Smile Stories

Derrek explains his journey of getting dental implants done by Dr. Shivani Gupta

Patient Testimonial - Derrek Gones
Hi, I am Derrek Gones. I'm here to tell my story about my implants and the service you guys provided.

Hi, I am Derrek Gones. I’m here to tell my story about my implants and the service you guys provided.

The first thing that made me come here was the fact that my teeth were horrible. I’ve had drug use that destroyed my teeth. My confidence was down, my breath was bad, and I couldn’t chew any food.

I came here, and you guys fixed the issue. I am super happy. I love my teeth. I am confident. People look at me with more respect. They look at me differently, and that means a lot to me.

Everybody here treated me fair, they were awesome, and I was just all around happy. I couldn’t be happier. I love my smile.

I used to cover my mouth when I would smile. Now I am super confident, and life is good. I want to thank Andy and Peninsula Dental, and I appreciate all of you.

What are you looking forward to doing when all the implants are healed?

I am looking forward to pizza and $150 steak at Ruth’s Chris. I couldn’t chew, and sometimes when chewing, I felt like I would choke, and it was scary to me.

But now I can chew whatever I want. So I am happy and excited about that, and life is good.

How will the new teeth help you in your business?

They help my business tremendously. Before implants, I wouldn’t want to get in front of the camera, and part of my job requires me to be in front of the camera.

Sometimes I would go to a show with the COVID mask on because I didn’t want to show my teeth and was very insecure.

Now I’m in front of the camera. I smile all day, and people who come to get the dogs from me, look at me with more respect.

They want to buy a dog from a person who has a beautiful smile like this.

How has your relationship with your girlfriend improved?

That is much better. While driving here, my girlfriend wouldn’t even turn toward my side because she didn’t want to smell my breath. My breath is fine now, with no issues. Our passion is back because she didn’t want to kiss me earlier.

I am going to Italy soon on a family trip. My mom’s from Albania, so we’re probably going to cross the Mediterranean sea and go to Albania as well. I am ready for all the selfies.

Is it really worth the pain and the money spent?

100%. I went through a little pain, I’ll be honest, but I will say this is 100% worth it. You feel better, you look better, and it is worth every penny spent.

The process of tooth replacement

Implant surgery is nothing to fear. Just like other dental procedures, implant placement is performed with local anesthetic. Numbed, you feel no more than you would if we were filling a cavity. If you feel anxious about your implant procedure, we can discuss calming your nerves with safe, effective sedation. The goal of implant dentistry is to achieve high standards of stability in tooth replacement. The goal of treatment at Peninsula Dental Implant Center is to achieve excellent results while also maintaining a high level of patient comfort. Dr. Gupta uses state-of-the-art technology to guide her implant procedure, carefully situating implants for optimal stability, and then covering implants with gum tissue so they can heal undisturbed.

In some situations, we may be able to place a temporary restoration onto an implant in the same appointment. The standard procedure, however, is to allow implants to heal beneath the gums before affixing any type of restoration. This is important to osseointegration, in which bone grows around the implant providing full stability.

The team at Peninsula Dental Implant Center is happy to help you find your way back to your best smile. Contact us for your personal consultation with Dr. Shivani Gupta.
