The appearance of your smile is a very personal thing. It communicates many things about you from your personality to your familiarity with the person you are greeting. Dental implants in Chesapeake, VA, help restore the appearance of a smile that has been affected by tooth loss. If you are among the millions of Americans missing one or more teeth, you should know that you have several tooth replacement options. A periodontist like Dr. Kenneth Cavallari who specializes in the placement of dental implants, All-on-4®, and teeth in a day can help you determine which option is right for you. All of us at Tidewater Laser Perio & Implants look forward to helping you restore your naturally beautiful smile.



This option is a permanent tooth loss solution that can reconstruct a smile that has been significantly damaged. A full arch of teeth is replaced with a denture carefully fabricated to match the appearance of natural teeth. Once prepared, the implant is ready for immediate placement. Full integration of the implant is achieved in just a few months.


Dental Implants

These implants easily replace individual lost teeth. They consist of three separate parts:

  • Post
  • Abutment
  • Crown

The post is made of titanium with fuses to the jawbone once set into place. The post is topped with the abutment which connects to the crown. A temporary crown is placed on the post while the permanent crowns are being fabricated. Once the permanent crowns are set on the integrated posts, the patient will enjoy this highly secure replacement.



This treatment option utilizes dental implant technology to replace rows of teeth, just like the Teeth-in-a-Day option. The four implant posts that support the denture-style crown portion help prevent bone loss while providing patients with superior performance and appearance.
