Failed Dental Implant Treatment


Start Smiling Dental Implant Centers are world renowned for their skills in successfully treating patients that are suffering from ‘botched’ dental implant procedures.

Full-Arch Dental Implants
(All-on-4 / 


 Rather than living with the discomfort and hassles of dentures, many people are opting for what is called full mouth dental implant restoration. For the best possible outcome and overall experience, surgical specialist Dr. Paul Petrungaro can give you a beautiful, natural looking smile in as little as one day.

Dental Implants


A dental implant is essentially a replacement tooth root. Most often, dental implants replace missing teeth that have been lost to decay or injury. Dental implants are a great alternative to traditional dentures because they are significantly more comfortable and easier to maintain. 

Cosmetic Gum Procedures


  Cosmetic Gum Procedures help with discolored teeth, fractured teeth or gaps between their teeth. Improve the look of the gums, teeth, or smile with procedures such as: Esthetic Crown Lengthening, Gum Graft surgery, or Ridge Augmentation to help you achieve the perfect smile you deserve.

Zygomatic Implants


Zygomatic Dental Implants offer patients with Advanced Bone Loss an immediate solution. Zygomatic Implants are much longer than traditional Implants and they are anchored in the upper jawbone near the dense zygoma bone, which is in your cheekbone. Because of their location, no multiple surgeries or grafting procedures are needed. 

Zirconia Implants


Zirconia implants are a holistic alternative to traditional titanium implants. Zirconia Implants may be more aesthetically pleasing, eliminating the risk of any dark lines around the gum. Originally, they were only available as a one-piece implant, but the introduction of two-piece zirconia implants now allows for abutments to be fully customized, creating the best outcomes. 

Immediate Tooth Replacements


Also called same day implants, immediate load dental implants allow placement of a temporary  crown during the same appointment as your extraction.

Ectodermal Dysplasia Dentistry


Ectodermal dysplasia is a complex genetic disorder that can cause defects in your teeth. Finding a periodontist who understands your condition can be challenging.

"I highly recommend Dr. Paul. His work is pure art. I feel good after getting Zirconia Implants vs Metal, and it's very good to know he offers this option for us patients."


"I've met with 6 other providers before Dr.Paul and I can say he's the one who spent the most time with me and I actually sat with a doctor. Best option out of all and am glad I chose Dr. Paul and his practice. I trusted him with my smile and it turned out phenomenal and as I expected."


"WOW in a word. Struggled for years hiding my teeth when I smile. Now, WOW. The people here are fantastic, they understand the technical stuff, but they also remember we are people with problems they know how to solve. The process was not painful considering what was being done. Now I wish my lips were smaller so you could see more teeth!"
