If you've lost a single tooth from decay, an accident, or peridontal disease, that tooth can easily be replaced using a dental implant. The new tooth will look just like any natural tooth.
A dental implant is placed in the bone below the gums. Most patients experience mild to no discomfort when the implant is placed. We typically wait 4-6 months for healing before a tooth is placed on the implant.
A crown restores the natural beauty of your smile and has an enamel-like material that looks like a natural tooth. The crown rests on a fixture called an abutment that links the implant to the crown. The result is a beautiful looking tooth which allows you to chew, eat, and smile like normal.
