What are Crown Implants?
With crown implants we replace individual teeth one at a time. A dental implant will be placed and a crown added to restore the visible portion of the tooth. We use a crown because the porcelain material is strong, stain-resistant, and mimics the appearance of natural teeth, blending with your smile seamlessly.
What Does Receiving a Prosthesis Involve?
First, the dental implant will be surgically inserted into the jawbone. The titanium material in the post bonds with the jawbone in a process known as Osseointegration. After the area heals, the doctor will add an abutment to the post. The abutment allows the doctor to attach the dental crown, completing the new tooth.
