Benefits of an all-ceramic crown on implant
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.
This procedure normally includes four visits to the dentist. You should expect to be able to work the day after having the implant installed.
The dentist makes the first examination and takes one or more x-rays of the area to prepare for the procedure.
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.
The final step is the placement of the permanent ceramic tooth. The new tooth is installed for life. No additional treatment is needed.
You should expect the new tooth to fit and function just like a natural tooth. Perform your usual dental hygiene to keep the tooth and gum around it clean and healthy.
