¿What are crowns over implants?
They are artificial teeth that are fixed on the implant to restore the function and aesthetic appearance of a natural tooth.
¿How is the crown made over the implant?
A special post called an `abutment´ is attached to the implant and it is the support for the new porcelain crown. After impressions are taken a crown is made and shaded to match your existing teeth. The crown is then slipped over the abutment and cemented and the final prosthetic crown appears as a natural tooth.
¿What are the variations of prostheses on implants?
Implant prostheses vary between:
- Crowns over implants
- Bridges with one or more crowns over implants
- Removable prostheses over implants
