For some having a missing front tooth can affect self esteem and confidence. Having a dental implant and crown is a great solution for replacing a front tooth as it brings back the feeling that the tooth is your own. We at the implant centre enjoy seeing the patient journey when replacing front teeth with a dental implant as it is great to see our patients regain their confidence and smile
The example given is someone who fractured a front tooth and had no other option but to have it removed. They did not want a bridge due to a previous one failing and they did not want a denture long term. They therefore opted for a dental implant and crown. We removed the tooth and allowed the area to heal for 8 weeks and in this time they had a temporary denture. At 8 to 10 weeks we checked that the implant had been successful and then proceeded to make a crown. The patient went to our laboratory to have a shade match to allow for a bespoke crown to be made. The crown was fitted 12 weeks after the tooth was removed.
For those who have gaps between their remaining teeth it can effect confidence when smiling and it can also be a problem when chewing food.More Info
