Find out how a dental implant will replace your missing tooth.

A dental implant is a great option for patients looking for the best long-term solution to replacing one or more missing teeth. Nothing is worse than losing a tooth but when you turn to your River Forest, IL dentists Dr. Gina Piccioni and Dr. John Hartmann you can get the next best thing to a real tooth. You may already know that the implant is the part that fuses together with the jaw bone to become Dental Implantsartificial tooth roots but what do you actually know about the restoration itself? Find out now!

While the implant is the part that no one will notice as it will be hidden within the jawbone, the dental crown is the part that everyone will see. Therefore, you want a dental restoration that looks as natural as possible. Your cosmetic dentist in River Forest, IL will attach a special structure known as an abutment to the top of the implant. This piece is designed to connect the crown securely to the implant.

While the implant itself is designed to last a lifetime a dental crown may need to be replaced at some point. This is why it’s so important to maintain those six-month dental checkups with your general dentists in River Forest. Through these routine visits, we can determine when a crown will need to be replaced.

The process for getting a dental crown for an implant is really no different than getting a crown for a damaged tooth. The crown will be custom-made to fill the gap where your tooth once was. The crown will also be matched to the shade of your teeth so that it looks just like a real tooth.
