After the metal post is placed for a dental implant, an implant restoration is performed. An implant restoration is typically completed with a replacement crown. An abutment will first be added to your implant, on top of which your new crown will be attached. We will work carefully to ensure that your new crown looks, acts and feels like a natural tooth in your mouth. A dental implant is an ideal tooth restoration for people who are missing one or more teeth. While implants are typically more expensive than other methods of tooth replacement, they provide superior benefits. Implants are stronger than natural teeth and last many years. They are also a more favorable approach than bridgework, because they do not depend on neighboring teeth for support.
