Single tooth replacement

Benefits of an all-ceramic crown on implant:
When both the tooth and root are damaged, the most predictable permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.

This treatment is planned and coordinated with your general dentist. Patients are never left without a missing front tooth at any time.

  • Immediately functioning teeth
  • Excellent aesthetic result
  • Life long, stable solution

Treatment:
This procedure is performed comfortably with local anesthetic, with minor post-operative discomfort. You should expect to be able to work the day after having the implant installed.

Course of Treatment
Installing the new tooth step-by-step:
The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult our periodontists to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.

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

2: Installing the implant
The implant is put in place. At this time, a temporary tooth maybe provided that allows you eat and function like normal almost immediately.  The implant will need a few months to fuse 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 and no additional treatment is needed.

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