Benefits of an all-ceramic crown on implant

Single tooth missing

When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.

In this case, a so-called one-piece implant is used. This means that all components are installed as a single unit, resulting in immediately full functioning teeth, shorter treatment time and minimized pain.

  • Immediately functioning teeth
  • Excellent esthetic result
  • Lifelong, stable solution

Treatment

This procedure normally includes four visits to the dentist. You should expect to be able to work the day after having the implant installed.

Course of Treatment: Installing the New Tooth – STEP-BY-STEP

The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.

1: Before the procedure

The dentist makes a first examination and takes one or more X-rays of the area to prepare for the procedure.

2: Installing the implant

The implant is installed. At this time, a temporary tooth is provided that allows you to eat and function like normal almost immediately. The implant will need a few months to integrate with the jawbone before the next step is taken.

3: Attaching the new crown

The final step is the placement of the permanent ceramic tooth. The new tooth is installed for life. No additional treatment is needed.

4: End result

Alternatives to an All-ceramic Crown on Implant

Tooth-supported fixed bridge

Tooth-supported fixed bridge

A traditional bridge involves grinding down adjacent teeth to support the bridge. It is a stable solution with good aesthetics and function that is fairly easy to install. However, this alternative has two main disadvantages: continuous bone resorption in the edentulous area, and sacrificing healthy teeth on behalf of the bridge.

Removable partial denture

Removable partial denture

This is not a permanent alternative to a lost tooth. It is unstable and loosely attached, which affects both function and comfort. A removable partial denture is made of plastic – a material that can't create the same aesthetic result as a ceramic crown. The benefits are few but do exist: adjacent teeth aren't affected. It is easily and quickly installed and relatively cheap.

Resin-bonded bridge

Resin-bonded bridge

This alternative has some clear advantages: it is quickly installed, functions well and, since it is made of ceramic, it gives a high aesthetic result. Moreover, natural healthy teeth aren't affected. But it is not very permanent. The resin-bonded bridge will eventually come off – probably after just a couple of years – and will then have to be reinstalled.

I highly recommend this dentist to anyone seeking quality, friendly, and honest treatment! My first appointment was postponed due to a staff member calling in sick, but it was totally worth the wait. Every staff member I interacted with, from the numerous phone calls leading up to my appointment to the final 'see you next time' I received upon leaving, was above any standard I had experienced prior. Overall, a great experience.

I became unsatisfied with my dentist in Cedar Hill and was looking for a new one. I was recommended her by my nutritionist and I was not disappointed. The hygienist was super friendly and transparent and I was also able to get an appointment for permanent retainers. I am 100 satisfied with the services.
