Dental Implant Restorations at Taher Family Dental
Dental implant restorations allow for you to have a tooth that looks, feels, and functions just like your natural teeth. The implant is a titanium post that is placed in the jawbone and your body forms bone around it over a period of several months. Once the implant has fused with the bone, an abutment is placed on top of the implant and a dental crown is placed on top of the abutment.
Why Choose Dental Implant Crowns?
Dental implant crowns are made from porcelain or ceramic material and are color matched to your natural teeth. Implant crowns are very strong and durable and will last for many years with proper care. They allow you to eat all the foods you love without the worry about them breaking or coming loose.
Opting for Crown Placement on Existing Implants
If you already have an implant placed and need a crown placed on top of it, we can make that happen for you. It would be helpful if you can provide us with the brand and size of the implant placed. This information can be found from your previous dental office or from the office where you had the implant placed. Without this information, it can be challenging to make a tooth on top of your implant, but not impossible. At Taher Family Dental, we have various implant systems and parts, prepared for diverse scenarios.
Understanding Dental Implant Crowns
A dental implant crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a dental implant to restore the appearance and function of a missing tooth. These crowns can be crafted from a range of materials, including porcelain, metal, and composite resin. Porcelain crowns are the most popular, owing to their natural appearance.
Statistics and Insights
In the United States, over 10 million dental implant crowns are positioned annually. According to research from the American Dental Association, the top motive for acquiring a dental implant crown is to replace a missing tooth, accounting for 70% of cases. The Journal of the American Dental Association has emphasized the efficacy of these crowns in restoring the look and functionality of absent teeth. With the right care, the lifespan of a dental implant crown generally ranges between 10-15 years.
Opting for a dental implant crown is not just about aesthetics, but also about restoring the natural function of your teeth. Whether you’re considering getting one or need one atop an existing implant, Taher Family Dental is here to guide you. We emphasize the importance of informed decisions and trust in a qualified dentist’s expertise.
