Dental Implant Crown − Fairfax VA
Just as the root of a natural tooth does, the dental implant provides a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth.
Implant Crowns vs. Implant Bridges
Dental implants are often the best treatment option for missing teeth. They serve as a substitute for the tooth root. Dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth and support replacement teeth that can be implant crowns or implant bridges, and are made to look as natural as your existing teeth.
What are the components of a dental implant crown?
The implant crown is made up of 2 components, the abutment and the crown. The abutment is the connector, placed on, or built into, the top of the dental implant to connect the implant to the replacement tooth or teeth. The crown is the replacement tooth, very similar to a crown you would get on a natural tooth.
