 If you are missing one or more teeth and wish to eat your favorite foods, increase your chewing ability, and improve your appearance, speech, and self-esteem, then you are a candidate for dental implants. A dental implant replaces the root of a missing tooth and is made from surgical-grade titanium alloy to exacting specifications. Initially, the implant is placed into the jawbone either immediately after the loss of a tooth, or after an extended period of time. If there is insufficient bone, various bone enhancing procedures can be performed prior to the implant placement. An abutment, which acts as a base for a prosthetic tooth replacement such as a crown, is inserted into the implant at the time of implant placement, or subsequently after a period of healing.

In the past, dentists would try to keep or replace teeth with treatments such as root canals, bridges, and fixed or removable dentures. Unfortunately, a significant number of root canal treated teeth fail, bridges require that healthy adjacent teeth be cut down and removable dentures can often be unstable and require the use of sticky adhesives. Dental implants are a solution to these problems, and many of the concerns associated with natural teeth are eliminated, including dental decay.

Cerec Single-day Crowns

 CEREC crowns and dental restorations are ideal for replacing your old metal crowns and fillings, or for repairing a newly damaged tooth. Because CEREC crowns, inlays and onlays are made from porcelain, they are more durable than white composite fillings and are less prone to fracture and decay. Because they are porcelain, they look like your natural tooth enamel, and share a similar hardness with your own teeth, making them look and feel like natural, healthy teeth.
