If you have a missing tooth or teeth that you’re replacing with a dental implant, a dental implant restoration such as a crown, bridge, or set of dentures attaches to it. The implant provides a secure anchor for your restoration, holding it in place, giving you a tooth-replacement solution that is durable, secure, and natural-looking.
The dental implant restoration functions just like a natural tooth, allowing you to chew food and smile with confidence.
A dental implant restoration has structural and cosmetic advantages, including:
The team at Dr. Vero’s office can help you choose the right dental implant restoration for you.
Anyone who receives a dental implant needs a dental implant restoration. Your choice to get a dental implant and its restoration may be because you are:
To receive dental implants, you need to have healthy oral tissues and a strong jaw bone. In some cases, if your jaw bone can’t support an implant, you might be a candidate for a bone graft.
Be sure to let your provider know if you smoke tobacco or if you have any health conditions that could affect the dental implant process.
The process begins with getting a dental implant first, which can take six months or longer from beginning to end.
An oral surgeon can put one or more implants in at one time, depending on the best recommendation for you. The healing process takes several months, giving time for osseointegration to occur where your jaw bone fuses with the implant.
Once you fully heal, Dr. Vero’s office can create your restored tooth or teeth.
The team uses digital radiography to produce images of your mouth or takes impressions and sends them to a laboratory where they manufacture the design of your tooth replacement. They also attach a metal abutment to your implant.
The final step brings your previously damaged tooth to full restoration, placing your prosthetic over your abutment and bonding them together with a special glue. You leave the office with a full smile that looks natural.
