Dental implant restorations are the second part of the dental implant process but often the first thing most people think of. The first step in the process is “implanting” a small titanium post in the jaw that serves as a “replacement root” of the tooth. Once the bone has healed tightly around the implant, a crown is placed as a “replacement tooth,” restoring the place in the mouth where a tooth had once been missing.
Dental implants are designed to replace the roots and the crowns of your missing teeth and give you a solution that looks, feels and functions exactly like your original tooth or teeth. After your implant post has been placed and integrated with your jawbone, our dentist will provide you with an implant restoration. Implant restorations replace the crowns of missing teeth to complete your treatment and fully restore your smile, oral function and oral health. Depending on how many teeth you are missing, your restoration may be a single crown, a dental bridge, or a complete or partial denture.
Our dentist will work closely with you to determine which type of restoration is right for your needs. Your final restoration will be custom designed to give you the most natural and long-lasting solution possible so that you can enjoy a beautiful smile for years to come.
