Implant Dentist Charlotte NC ~ Implant Crown Front Tooth

Dental Implants have become one of the best ways to replace a missing tooth.  The implant acts as a post or a root replacement so a crown or implant bridge can be connected.  Once this is done you do not remove the crown or implant bridge….its as close to a real tooth as you can get today. 


My patient comes in with her front tooth broken at the gum line.  There is still the root of the tooth in place that will have to be extracted before the dental implant can be inserted.

The dental implant is placed after the root is extracted.  In this case there was enough bone left to place the implant the same day the tooth was extracted.  There was also enough stability of the implant to place the abutment(post that comes through the gum) to support a temporary crown.  The temporary crown is made so when you close it does not touch; an important part in allowing the implant to heal into the bone.  This also allow the gum tissue to mold around the abutment.

2 months later impressions are taken to make a custom abutment(post) and the final porcelain implant crwon.  Here the final crown is in place.

This type of implant dentistry can be done for multiple missing teeth for an implant bridge.  That way adjacent teeth do not need to be shaved down for crowns to support the missing tooth.  

There are many implant dentistry solutions that can be offered.  I suggest you consider coming in for a evaluation to see if dental implants can be the right solution for you.

Implant Crown for Missing Tooth Charlotte NC ~ Implant Dentist

We love helping patients in the Charlotte Hickory area who are missing teeth with dental implants.  My next patient came to see me missing his front tooth.  He did not want to get the teeth on either side ground down for a bridge.  

IMG_0091My patients smile with the missing front tooth.  As you can expect its hard to feel good about yourself with a missing front tooth!







X02003A dental implant was placed to act as the root for the missing front tooth.  Once it heals an abutment will be placed (the part that will come out of the gum) for the final porcelain crown to be attached to.











IMG_0136The implant was placed without having to make any cuts in the gum….so in a few weeks everything is ready to go for the final crown impressions. Here we can see the protective cover cap has been removed and the gum tissue is looking good for the final abutment.



IMG_0156The final porcelain implant crown is made at the dental lab.  In this case extra care was taken to add in special staining and texture to match the adjacent front tooth.  If these characterizations were not placed the front tooth would look fake and too white.  However it is up to the patient to decide what color they wish to have.









IMG_0153The porcelain implant crown shown here on the custom abutment.  There is a precise fit of the crown to the abutment.  This will keep the gum in good health and allow the patient to brush and floss the implant crown just like any other tooth in his mouth.
