SINGLE TOOTH MISSING?


Benefits of an all-ceramic crown on implant:


When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.

In this case, a so-called one-piece implant is used. This means that all components are installed as a single unit, resulting in immediately full functioning teeth, shorter treatment time and minimized pain.

  • Immediately functioning teeth

  • Excellent aesthetic result

  • Lifelong, stable solution

DENTAL IMPLANT TREATMENT


This procedure normally includes four visits to the dentist. You should expect to be able to work the day after having the implant installed.

1: Before the procedure
The dentist makes the first examination and takes one or more x-rays of the area to prepare for the procedure.

 

2: Installing the implant
The implant is installed. At this time, a temporary tooth is provided that allows you to eat and function like normal almost immediately. The implant will need a few months to integrate with the jawbone before the next step is taken.

 

3: Attaching the new crown
The final step is the placement of the permanent ceramic tooth. The new tooth is installed for life. No additional treatment is needed.

 

4: End result
You should expect the new tooth to fit and function just like a natural tooth. Perform your usual dental hygiene to keep the tooth and gum around it clean and healthy.
