Dental implant placement is the most efficient treatment procedure in the case of a single tooth loss. It provides both aesthetic and durable effects in a short time. The dentist inserts a dental implant to replace the root of the natural tooth. Afterwards, a crown is affixed to it, which is to imitate the natural tooth. Also, with regard to a single tooth loss, implants have another positive feature. More precisely, in order for an implant to be placed, no grinding of the adjacent teeth is required. This is not the case with traditional prosthetic procedures. Dental implants are also the most durable solution as they can last for decades, while traditional bridges have to be replaced every few years.
Implant-supported crowns perfectly fulfill their aesthetic role. Thus, if the front tooth is to be replaced, a full ceramic crown that imitates a natural tooth is recommended. This material fully mimics the structure and natural transparency of the enamel, as well as provides great opportunities to find the best matching colour and shade. Due to this, it is almost impossible to distinguish an implant-supported crown from a patient’s own teeth, and thus your smile can remain natural and healthy.
