Dental implant crowns are artificial teeth that replace permanent teeth that are missing or were extracted due to extreme decay or damage.
Dental implants are metal tooth roots Dr. Ament inserts into the jawbone to anchor crowns, dentures, or bridges.
Crowns are artificial teeth that bond to dental implants, filling in gaps left by missing teeth. Bothell Family Dentistry offers CEREC® same-day crown technology to reduce the need for multiple dental appointments.
If you’re missing one or more permanent teeth, the advantages of choosing dental implant crowns at Bothell Family Dentistry include:
Dental implant crowns may reduce your risk of future dental problems. They’re durable, often lasting 25 years or longer.
Dental implant crowns can replace permanent teeth that are:
Dental implants look and function like natural teeth. They’re an ideal solution for many patients. You might need bone grafting before dental implant placement if you have a weak jawbone.
After discussing your oral health history, symptoms, and desired results, Dr. Ament determines if dental implant crowns are right for you. She examines your gums, teeth, and mouth and takes dental X-rays.
In addition to crowns, dental implants can support bridges and dentures.
Dental implant crowns require multiple dental visits. Dr. Ament numbs the treatment area during the first appointment and places metal posts into your jawbone.
After the implants have a chance to heal, you return to Bothell Family Dentistry. Dr. Ament digitally scans your mouth and creates custom-fitted crowns. When they’re ready, she places abutments (connector posts) on the implants and attaches the crowns.
Take good care of your new dental implant crowns by brushing your teeth after meals, flossing every day, not chewing on hard objects, and attending six-month dental cleanings and exams.
