Are you missing a single tooth? Then an implant-retained crown is a great way to bring it back to life. After your implant placement procedure, we’ll attach a custom-made all-porcelain crown to it using a metal connector called an abutment. At this point, your new tooth will be virtually indistinguishable from the others in color, shape, and strength. We’ll design your crown to completely blend in with your smile, and all you’ll need to do to take care of it is brush and floss like normal.
Or, if you are missing a few teeth in a row, implant crowns can actually be used to form a bridge as well. Two crowns will be placed on either side of the space in your smile, and these will be bonded to prosthetic teeth to close it. Compared to traditional bridges, implant-retained bridges have a better hold, last longer, and look more natural as well.
