Benefits of an all-ceramic crown on implant: 

When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.

In this case, a so-called one-piece implant is used. This means that all components are installed as a single unit, resulting in immediately full functioning teeth, shorter treatment time and minimized pain.

  • Immediately functioning teeth
  • Excellent esthetic result
  • Life long, stable solution

Treatment: 

This procedure normally includes four visits to the dentist. You should expect to be able to work the day after having the implant installed.

Course of treatment: 


The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.


1: Before the procedure
The dentist makes a first examination and takes
one or more x-rays of the area to prepare for the
procedure.



2: Installing the implant
The implant is installed. At this time, a temporary
tooth is provided that allows you eat and
function like normal almost immediately. The
implant will need a few months to integrate with
the jawbone before the next step is taken.

3: Attaching the new crown
The final step is the placement of the permanent
ceramic tooth. The new tooth is installed for life.
No additional treatment is needed.


4: End result
You should expect the new tooth to fit and
function just like a natural tooth. Do your usual
dental hygiene to keep the tooth and gum
around it clean.

ALTERNATIVES TO AN ALL-CERAMIC CROWN ON IMPLANT



Tooth-supported fixed bridge

A traditional bridge involves grinding down adjacent teeth to support the bridge. It is a stable solution with good esthetics and function that is fairly easy to install. However, this alternative has two main disadvantages: continuous bone resorbtion in the edentulous area, and sacrificing healthy teeth on behalf of the bridge.

 


Removable partial denture

This is not a permanent alternative to a lost tooth. It is unstable and loosely attached, which affects both function and comfort. A removable partial denture is made of plastic – a material that can't create the same esthetic result as a ceramic crown. The benefits are few but do exist: adjacent teeth aren't affected. It is easily and quickly installed and relatively cheap. 

 


Resin-bonded bridge
This alternative has some clear advantages: it is quickly installed, functions well and, since it is made of ceramic, it gives a high esthetic result. Moreover, natural healthy teeth aren't affected. But it is not very permanent. The resin-bonded bridge will eventually come off – probably after just a couple of years – and will then have to be reinstalled.
