Dental Implants in the Smile Zone Offer a Beautiful, Natural-Looking Solution

Missing teeth in your smile zone can significantly impact your self-confidence and quality of life. Fortunately, dental implant placement using advanced Piezosurgery technology offers a minimally invasive, natural-looking solution for tooth replacement in the esthetic zone.

What are Dental Implants in the Esthetic Zone?

The esthetic zone refers to the visible front teeth, incisors, and canines. This area has the greatest impact on the look of your smile. Dental implants in the smile zone replace damaged or missing teeth in the most visible part of your smile. 

A dental implant consists of a small titanium screw surgically embedded into the jawbone. This restoration is topped with a custom-crafted crown designed to blend seamlessly with your surrounding teeth. With their natural shape, color, and contours, dental implants in the smile zone can restore the beautiful appearance of your smile.

What is Piezosurgery Technology?

Piezosurgery is an advanced oral surgery technology that uses low-frequency ultrasonic vibrations to perform delicate hard and soft tissue procedures. As part of implant dentistry, it gives Dr. Boltchi ultimate precision and control when placing dental implants in the smile zone. 

With Piezosurgery, implant placement in the esthetic zone can be performed with minimal invasion into the gum tissue and bone. This innovative approach to placing implants in the esthetic zone reduces pain, swelling, and recovery time compared to conventional implant placement techniques.

What Is Minimally Invasive Dental Implant Placement Like?

Uses of Piezosurgery Technology

In addition to dental implant placement, Piezosurgery offers advantages for the following hard and soft tissue procedures:

  • Gum Surgeries: Piezosurgery technology allows for more precise reshaping and contouring of gum tissue with minimal bleeding and faster healing.
  • Crown Lengthening: Piezosurgery technology helps Dr. Boltchi more carefully reshape the bone to expose more of the natural tooth for the placement of aesthetic restorations.
  • Bone Augmentation: With Piezosurgery technology, Dr. Boltchi can gently form and graft bone to build up thin or deficient areas.

Your dental implant treatment at DFW Implant Center is personalized to your specific oral health needs and smile goals.

Benefits of Esthetic Zone Implant Placement With Piezosurgery

Choosing Piezosurgery technology to place dental implants in your smile zone offers a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Enhanced Precision and Control: The ultrasonic vibrations enable delicate cutting of hard and soft tissue as well as gentler implant placement, which is impossible with conventional drilling.
  • Reduced Tissue Trauma: Less vibration and heat during implant placement minimizes damage to surrounding hard and soft tissue.
  • Faster Recovery: With Piezosurgery technology, patients experience less swelling, bleeding, and post-implant placement discomfort.
  • Natural-Looking Results – Using Piezosurgery instead of traditional surgical techniques, implant placement has minimal impact on surrounding tissues for seamless integration.
  • Long-Lasting Solutions – Implant placement with Piezosurgery provides success rates equal to or greater than traditional implant placement.

The Process of Placing Dental Implants in the Smile Zone with Piezosurgery


Before implant placement with Piezosurgery technology, you’ll have an initial consultation with Dr. Boltchi. He’ll provide a comprehensive exam of your oral cavity’s hard and soft tissues, including digital X-rays, and make note of any missing teeth in the esthetic zone of your smile during this consultation. He’ll also explain what makes Piezosurgery different from traditional dental implant placement and how it can benefit your treatment outcome. Your consultation is a great time to ask any questions or voice any concerns you may have about implant therapy. 


A 3D scan of your mouth helps map out your unique anatomy and create a personalized implant therapy plan. If necessary, you’ll undergo tooth extraction to make room for the implant restoration or restorations, and gum disease, if present, is treated.

Dental Implant Treatment Planning

The number of implants, the necessary implant position, and the dimensions of the dental implants are carefully planned based on 3D images of your bone structure, bite, and smile aesthetics. Custom drill guides are designed to access the ideal implant site or sites.

Piezosurgery Implant Placement

On the day of your implant placement procedure, your Arlington periodontist will prepare the surgical site and administer local anesthesia. We also provide sedation dentistry options for patients who are feeling nervous or those who are in for a long procedure. 

Guided by the 3D plan, Dr. Boltchi uses specialized ultrasonic tips to gently create channels for the implant body or bodies. Then, he’ll begin the implant placements, inserting the titanium dental implants and completing your tooth root replacement.

Prosthetic Restoration

Natural-looking crowns, bridges, or dentures are designed and attached to your new dental implants, replacing missing teeth and resulting in a seamless, beautiful new smile. Your restoration will most likely be placed out of office by a skilled prosthodontist and any adjustments can be made during at our Arlington office. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Whether dental implant placement with Piezosurgery technology is covered by insurance can vary depending on your specific insurance plan and provider. In many cases, dental insurance may cover a portion of the cost of implant surgery. 

Some insurance plans may cover the basic cost of implant placement but may not specifically cover the additional cost associated with using Piezosurgery technology. Consult your dental provider and insurance company to determine coverage and any potential out-of-pocket expenses.

Dental implants placed in the esthetic zone, including front teeth visible when smiling, can have slightly higher failure rates compared to dental implants in other areas. This is due to greater aesthetic demands and challenges in achieving optimal gum and tooth alignment. 

However, implant technology and technique advancements have significantly reduced these risks, and success rates remain high with proper planning and execution by skilled dental professionals. Patient selection, meticulous surgical technique, proper planning of implant position, and ongoing maintenance are critical for minimizing failure rates in the esthetic zone.

The pain experienced during dental implant surgery in the esthetic zone is typically similar to that of implants placed in other areas of the mouth. However, the perception of pain can vary among individuals. 

Factors such as the complexity of the procedure, individual pain tolerance, and the effectiveness of anesthesia can influence the level of discomfort. Dentists often use local anesthesia and may offer additional sedation options to ensure patient comfort during the procedure.

Gum recession can sometimes occur around dental implants, particularly in the esthetic zone. Your implant dentist may recommend gum grafting or other procedures to address recession and enhance the appearance of the gumline. Regular dental visits and proper oral hygiene can also help prevent and manage gum recession.
