First, the dentist surgically places the implant into the jawbone. There may be some swelling and/or tenderness after the surgery, so pain medication is usually prescribed.
Next comes osseointegration. What makes an implant so strong is that the bone actually grows around it and holds it in place. Osseointegration means “combines with the bone” and takes time.
Finally, it’s time for the placement of the artificial tooth/teeth. The doctors will customize a new tooth for you, called a dental crown. The crown will be based on size, shape, color and fit and will be designed to blend in with your other teeth. Implant-supported bridges or dentures are also made to fit your mouth and your implants. Once completed, the man-made teeth are attached to the implant posts
Laminate Veneer Crown
Laminate veneer is the most preferred treatment method for smile design. Eliminating gaps between teeth, changing tooth color, removing erosion and even re-alignment is possible by this treatment.
Veneers are nail thick, thin, porcelain, small leaves. Firstly, front sides of teeth are roughened little bit, then porcelain veneers are stuck and a very natural aesthetic appearance is gained. You don`t have to roughen all sides of teeth. You can reach maximum aesthetic with minimum roughening just on the front sides
When is Zirconium Crown preferred?
In the situations without tooth loss but with a lot ravage or where laminate crown practice result inadequate, empress or zirconium crown can be used. In this system white color zirconium compound is used as base instead of metal.
There are many factors which affect the appearance of crowns and bridges; among them the most important one is their reaction for light. Natural teeth are transparent for light. This comes up with depth and vividness on teeth as a result. Because of their transparency feature, porcelain crowns without metal supports (empress-zirconium) have more depth and vividness. Thus, the most nature tooth like results is obtained.
