A single missing tooth can be easily replaced by a porcelain crown supported by a dental implant.
Dental implant-supported crowns are recognized as the standard of care for replacing a missing tooth.
A dental implant is placed in the gum beneath the gum where the natural tooth root was located. Then a post (called an abutment) is attached to the implant and provides support for a porcelain crown.
This treatment restores full chewing ability, preserves adjacent healthy teeth, and prevents bone loss.
