Dental implant crowns allow for you to have a tooth that looks, feels, and functions just like your natural teeth. The implant is a titanium post that is placed in the jawbone and your body forms bone around it over a period of several months. Once the implant has fused with the bone, an abutment is placed on top of the implant and a dental crown is placed on top of the abutment.
Dental implant crowns are made from porcelain or ceramic material and are color matched to your natural teeth. Implant crowns are very strong and durable and will last for many years with proper care. implant crowns allow you to eat all the foods you love without the worry about them breaking or coming loose.
If you already have an implant placed and need a crown placed on top of it, we can make that happen for you. It would be helpful if you can provide us with the brand and size of the implant placed. This information can be found from your previous dental office or from the office where you had the implant placed. Without this information, it can be challenging to make a tooth on top of your implant, but not impossible. Our office has many implant systems and parts, and we are prepared for many scenarios.
