What is a Single Tooth Replacement?
If you are missing or soon to be missing a single tooth, a single tooth dental implant restoration is the ideal solution to restore your smile. There are multiple treatment options to consider when replacing a missing tooth, but dental implants are a permanent, worry-free solution.
A dental implant to replace a single tooth consists of a small screw and customized dental crown. Dental implants are ideal for replacing single teeth without impairing gum health or damaging surrounding teeth. Once a tooth has fallen out or been removed, a replacement tooth needs to be put in the open space to help restore proper dental alignment and oral health. The replacement of the missing tooth will replace the function of chewing and improve the cosmetic appearance of your smile.
In many instances, Drs. Estrella are able to provide “same day teeth” to our dental patients. If you’re interested, schedule a dental implant consultation with Estrella Dental today!
The Benefits of Single Tooth Implant Replacement:
- No damage to natural teeth (compared to a dental bridge)
- Maintenance of bone volume (the implant preserves the bone)
- Less force is put on the surrounding teeth (the implant strengthens the surrounding teeth/arch)
- Better aesthetic outcome (if the implant is properly positioned)
How Will Your New Implant Crown Look?
The crown placed on top of your new dental implant will match your surrounding natural teeth within 95%. This “less than perfect” shade matching goal helps your new dental implant crown blend in with your surrounding teeth so that the vast majority of people will never be able to pick the implant crown.
Choose Single Tooth Replacement at Estrella Dental’s Implant Center
Placing a dental implant is a delicate procedure. Many dentists and lab technicians agree that replacing a single, upper central incisor is the most difficult procedure in all of dentistry.
The use of porcelain to match your tooth enamel, even in the hands of an expert dental technician (ceramist) is a daunting task. The implant position, color and contour further complicate the challenge. There is no doubt that experience, tenacity and a commitment to excellence helps the process. At Estrella Dental we do not finish your dental implant treatment until everyone agrees that the color matching process is as close as humanly possible, ensuring you’re satisfied with your single tooth replacement
