Dental Implants in Shoreline, WA
A Secure and Lasting Solution
Missing teeth can cause all sorts of challenges with eating, speaking, and certainly smiling. Sometimes you may require a replacement for a single tooth and other times you are looking for a solution to removable dentures. Dental implants are often preferred to dentures as implants require no adhesives, suction, clasps, or crowned support teeth to stay in place.
A dental implant is a permanent solution that is the closest to restoring your natural tooth because an implant screw, which is easily accepted by the body, replaces the root of your tooth while a custom fabricated crown replaces your actual tooth.
Bright 32 offers several types of dental implants, which Dr. Brenner can go over with you during a virtual or in-person consultation. Rest assured that Dr. Brenner’s primary goals are providing you with the highest level of comfort, safety, and quality of work to give you a beautiful and functional smile.

The Dental Implant Process
You will receive a comprehensive examination to determine if you are a good candidate for a dental implant. With the use of our advanced 3-D imaging, we will help guide you through the entire process so you can see from start to finish how your implant will look and function!
During the implant placement process, Dr. Brenner and our experienced team at Bright 32 Family Dentistry will gently and properly place dental implants using the highest level of technology. This will ensure not only the best long-term success but the best looking smile as well!
After your implant is placed, our team carefully monitors your healing for several months until it is ready for a custom restoration. We are sure to be open and transparent about the entire process of your journey so you aren’t left with any questions or concerns.
Depending on your specific dental needs, your single crown or custom made implant-retained bridge or denture will be permanently inserted to give you a long lasting and natural new smile. Dr. Brenner will follow up with you for post care instructions.

What should I expect following my dental implant?
You can expect to experience temporary bleeding, numbness, and swelling at the dental implant site. Most of these symptoms can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication, ice packs, and a soft food diet for a few days.
Are there any problems with dental implants?
Not everyone is a great candidate for dental implants. If you have any underlying health conditions like diabetes or heart disease that may affect the ability of the implant to adhere to your jaw bone, it may compromise the implant’s success.
What is the cost of dental implants?
A dental implant is a long-term investment into your oral health and the cost will depend on the number of implants, implant materials, and type of restoration. Exact pricing for your treatment can only be determined after an exam. We work with all of our patients to fit costs into your budget and find a plan that works for YOU!
