Implant crowns are dental restorations used to replace missing teeth with the support of dental implants. A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically inserted into the jawbone to serve as an artificial tooth root.

An implant crown is similar in appearance and function to a natural tooth crown. It consists of two main components:

● Implant abutment: This is a small connector piece that attaches to the top of the dental implant and protrudes through the gum line. The abutment provides support for the implant crown and serves as a connection between the implant and the crown.● Crown: The crown is the visible part of the restoration that resembles a natural tooth. It is typically made of durable and lifelike materials such as porcelain or ceramic. The crown is custom-designed to match the size, shape, and color of the patient's natural teeth, ensuring a seamless and aesthetic result.

Implant crowns offer several advantages for replacing missing teeth, including:

● Stability: Dental implants provide a secure and stable foundation for the implant crown, allowing for comfortable chewing and speaking.● Longevity: With proper care and maintenance, implant crowns can last for many years, often even a lifetime.● Aesthetic appeal: Implant crowns are designed to blend seamlessly with the surrounding teeth, creating a natural-looking smile.● Preservation of adjacent teeth: Unlike traditional dental bridges, implant crowns do not require the alteration or removal of adjacent teeth for support, helping to preserve their health and integrity.
Overall, implant crowns are a popular and effective solution for replacing missing teeth, restoring function, aesthetics, and confidence to patients' smiles.
