To understand what a dental implant restoration is, it’s important to understand the main components of a dental implant. The actual implant itself is the titanium post that’s surgically placed into your jaw to act as the artificial tooth root. On top of this post is the restoration, which is the part that’s designed to look like a natural tooth. There are various professional involved in the implant process. An oral surgeon will complete the implant surgery, a restorative dentist will help create replacement teeth and manage your care, and a dental lab may fabricate the restorations themselves.
Depending on how many teeth you’re missing, your restoration could be one of the following:
A dental crown, sometimes called a dental cap, covers a single tooth or dental implant. Crowns can be made out of many types of materials. Porcelain/ceramic is the variety that looks the most natural and is the most durable.
While crowns replace one tooth, dental bridges replace multiple teeth. They bridge the gap in your smile by connecting to natural teeth on either side. An implant-supported bridge can be an effective way to restore a larger gap. Instead of natural teeth, this is supported by dental implants and crowns on either side.
If you have lost all of your upper or lower teeth, dentures can help restore your confidence in your smile and improve your ability to eat and talk naturally. However, many people are uncomfortable with traditional dentures because they can shift in your mouth. Implant-retained dentures are attached to dental implants so they stay secure.
The cost of implant restoration is based on which option you choose. If you decide to come to Skyline Dental for your smile restoration, we’ll give you a cost estimate based on our consultation with you. Our Tucson practice wants to make your implant restoration as manageable as possible so you never have to empty your bank just to have a functional smile that you love.
