A dental implant is self-supporting and our dentist will not need to shape the adjacent teeth in preparation for crowns to hold the bridge in place. Your dental implant will also prevent bone loss which naturally occurs after a tooth is extracted. Once your dental implant is in position, it will prevent your adjacent teeth from moving out of place, helping to protect and stabilise them. A dental implant will also help to spread the forces created whenever you bite and chew food, which is another protective effect.
This is another advantage of choosing single implants, as once your implant crown is in place, it will appear to be emerging from your gums, just like a real tooth. A skilfully made implant crown will blend in beautifully with your existing teeth so no one need know it is a replacement. We take a great deal of time in designing and making our implant crowns as it’s important to us to get the shade just right so that once fitted it looks perfect.
