Dental implants are a popular solution for missing or damaged teeth. One of the most critical stages of the procedure is crown restoration. The crown is the visible part of the implant that attaches to the titanium screw embedded in the jawbone. After the implant has fully integrated, the crown restoration is affixed to the implant.
Our doctors must consider several factors when creating the perfect crown restoration, such as color, shape, and alignment. When aesthetics are crucial, a customized temporary crown may be installed to serve as a blueprint for the permanent crown.
We offer a choice of screw or cement retainers for attaching the crown. Screw retainment makes it easier to maintain and adjust the crown regularly, while cement retainment is suitable for front teeth due to its smooth surface. However, cement crowns are harder to remove for implant repair, and the cement may irritate the gum and bone tissue. The choice of crown material and attachment method must be carefully considered to ensure a stunning and functional crown restoration that matches the adjacent natural teeth.
