Dental implants can replace missing teeth permanently, resulting in a very natural appearance and improved oral function. Your ability to speak and eat can be affected when you are missing teeth, not to mention the effects lost teeth can have on the look of your smile. A large gap along your gums can also lead to shifting and movement of surrounding teeth, or other dental issues. Dental implants are designed to become a permanent part of your mouth just like your natural teeth. This makes the additional maintenance and other issues found with traditional dentures unnecessary – daily brushing and flossing is sufficient. Dental implants can also be used for anchored denture procedures, enhancing the strength and stability of dentures and reducing the chances of slippage along the gums.
Contemporary & Esthetic Dentistry is dedicated to providing you with the highest quality treatments. Our implant specialist and cosmetic dentist Dr. Marianna Farber is a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI), and works with some of the best labs and lab technicians in the country, as well as carefully selected periodontists and oral surgeons. Dr. Farber provides beautiful dental implant restorations as the finishing touch for your procedure. These custom-made crowns are designed for the best possible fit and appearance over your dental implant, enhancing your smile with often permanent results!
The Dental Implant Process
Once Dr. Farber has determined that you are a candidate for dental implants, the implant (composed of a titanium post) will be placed by an experienced periodontist or oral surgeon. If your jawbone is not strong enough to support dental implants, Dr. Farber can recommend an appropriate alternative, such as dental bridges and crowns.
Once the dental implant has been placed below the gumline, it will take a few months for it to fuse with the jawbone. During the fusion process, a temporary crown can be placed on top of the implant. As the titanium post and the bone bond together, the implant acts like a strong tooth root. After fusion is complete, Dr. Farber will attach a customized permanent crown. The crown will be made by one of the renowned dental labs that we utilize to craft our restorations, which include Marotta Dental, and labs affiliated with the Oral Design International group, including the renowned Jason J. Kim Oral Design New York Center. At the Jason Kim lab, patients receive personalized treatment plans from the Master Ceramist, and have the opportunity to view their potential results prior to the procedure, using a program called PreNew PreView®.
Since dental implants are designed to mimic your natural teeth, they typically have permanent results. In fact, they are made to result in such a natural appearance and comfortable fit, you may have trouble distinguishing the implant from your original teeth!
