With luminous and permanent dental implants, you’ll be smiling proudly again.
Whether you live in Coral Springs, FL or right down the street in Parkland, FL, Dental Wellness Team is here for you every step of the way.
The Dental Implant Process
Prior to beginning the process, our dental implants dentist assesses your oral health and carefully listens to your aesthetic goals. Using dental imaging, Dr. Pinero gains insight into your oral structures, allowing her to recommend the best dental implants for your needs.
Dental implants have three parts: the dental implant itself, which is a biocompatible metal post that is implanted into the jaw, the abutment attached to the implant, and the restoration that is held in place by the abutment. Dental implants can be used to anchor crowns, dentures, or bridges.
At Dental Wellness Team, we offer same-day dental crowns using advanced CEREC technology. When your dental implant restoration is completed with an ultra-durable CEREC crown, you will be able to receive your permanent restoration on the same day as your dental implant procedure—no temporary crowns and two-week wait required!
Types of Dental Implants
Whether you are missing one tooth or a mouth full of teeth, Dr. Pinero, can provide you with the best dental implants for your smile. In fact, Dr. Pinero, is one of the only dental implant dentists in the area that surgically places dental implants. This means you can undergo the tooth replacement process at the very same Coral Springs dental office you know and trust. We offer the following types of dental implants:
Endosteal Dental Implants
Endosteal implants are the most common type of dental implant for patients who are healthy and don’t have any oral health complications.
Endosteal implants are shaped like cylinders, blades, or screws. They are surgically implanted directly into the jawbone, then we wait for the implant and bone to fuse together, which usually takes three to six months. After this occurs, your prosthetic tooth is attached.
Subperiosteal Dental Implants
Subperiosteal implants are used when a patient isn't a candidate for endosteal implants. If you have experienced bone loss or have a shallow jawbone, you may need subperiosteal dental implants.
Subperiosteal implants are designed to fit over the jawbone and are implanted just below the gum tissue, fusing to the bone over time. Once fused, these implants act as anchors for your prosthetic teeth.

With All-on-4® dental implants, you can enjoy a brand new smile in just one day. All-on-4®, also referred to as Teeth in a Day, rehabilitates an entire upper or lower arch by using four implants to support a permanent, fixed denture.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants
How much do dental implants cost?
Dental Wellness Team is committed to providing fair and honest pricing to each and every one of our patients. In terms of dental implants cost, pricing varies depending upon the procedure needed and the type of restoration. For instance, if you require preliminary procedures to augment your jaw or extract teeth, your final price will be higher. We can provide you with an estimate at your consultation.
Are dental implants covered by insurance?
Some insurance plans cover some parts of the dental implant procedure. We work with major insurance carriers that cover dental implants. To make the dental implants process as affordable as possible, we offer a wide range of payment and financing options to help with the cost, including our VIP Discount Plan and low-interest and 0% financing through CareCredit®.
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants are designed to be a permanent, lifelong solution for missing teeth. That said, the restorations attached to your dental implants may eventually need replacement, depending on the material used and the amount of wear they receive. Still, these restorations can last decades with proper care.
How soon after an extraction can I get a dental implant?
For some types of dental implant restorations, it’s possible to receive your dental implant at the same time as an extraction. We’ll go over whether this is an option for you at your consultation.
