If a tooth is missing, damaged, or decayed beyond the point of repair, the best way to restore a complete smile is to replace it with an artificial tooth—and dental implants make this process more effective than ever. Dental implants are made up of three parts: the post, the dental crown, and the abutment that connects the two. The small titanium posts are surgically placed into the empty tooth socket, then capped with an artificial dental implant restoration, which is then shaped to match your natural teeth.
Once fully restored, dental implants mimic the functional qualities of natural teeth, restoring your ability to bite and chew comfortably. If you want to improve the appearance and function of your smile with a strong, healthy, and natural-looking replacement tooth, dental implants may be the perfect solution. Dr. Rebecca Bork is experienced in providing dental implant restorations in Allen, TX, with lifelike crowns after the implant has been placed by a surgeon.
The aesthetic benefits to replacing failing or missing teeth with dental implants are just one aspect that make them such an effective and advantageous treatment. Because implants are made from titanium, they will integrate with your natural bone, literally fusing to the jawbone and providing a strong, supportive base for an artificial tooth. With dental implants, bite pressure is disseminated naturally across the jawbone, preventing the bone loss problems, providing a better option than dentures or retainer-based artificial teeth. All in all, dental implants replace entire teeth, from the root to the crown, making them the best solution for permanently restoring one or more teeth!
After your surgeon has placed your dental implant into your jaw and it has had some time to heal, Dr. Bork will be able to provide a dental implant restoration with a lifelike dental crown. We carefully color-match and shape the dental implant restoration to flawlessly match your other teeth and work closely with an accredited dental lab to ensure your dental crown, bridge, or prosthesis is aesthetic, functional, and fits comfortably to reduce the risk for broken restorations. This process is a critical component of your dental implant treatment and Dr. Bork combines her artistry and technical skills to design dental implant restorations that naturally complement your smile. After any final adjustments, we will permanently cement the restoration to the implant, giving you a complete, beautiful new smile!
