The final piece of your implant treatment is the dental implant restoration. Dental implant restorations are often crowns, although bridges and dentures may also be used depending on the number of teeth that are missing and your individual needs and preferences.

Dental crowns are a restorative treatment, most often used to strengthen, protect and improve the shape of a tooth after it has been damaged. Also known as “caps,” dental crowns cover the entire visible portion of the tooth above the gum line to become the tooth’s new outer surface. When used as part of a dental implant treatment, the crown fits over the top of the implant post to complete the replacement of your missing tooth and restore your smile and oral function.
Crowns are usually created in a dental lab using an impression taken by our dentists during your appointment. The impression allows the lab technician to create a dental crown that fits your smile, bite and jaw movements perfectly so that you can enjoy a natural-looking result and a long-lasting solution for your smile.
