A dental implant is an excellent choice for replacing a lost tooth. An implant is stable and helps keep your jawbone healthy and strong. While the titanium post is an extremely important part of the process, you also need to replace the crown or visible part of your tooth. That is when you should plan an appointment with our dentist for your dental implant restoration.
After your post has integrated with your jaw, our dentist will see you for an exam to determine which type of restoration is right for you. You may only need a restoration for a single tooth. If you are replacing several teeth, you may need an implant-supported bridge or denture. The restoration is then crafted in a dental lab and placed on the abutment attached to the post.
The restoration itself will be designed to look natural and blend in seamlessly with your smile. The restoration will improve your ability to speak and even allow you to enjoy foods that you may have thought you would never eat again. Best of all, you can once again smile with confidence.
