Having a tooth knocked out or lost to untreated tooth decay is always a serious cause for concern. Beyond the impaired ability to bite and chew food, if the tooth was prevalent in your smile, it can also alter your appearance, impact your speech, and hamper your self-esteem.
Many people in the Sarasota, Florida area in a situation like this will turn to the dental restoration specialists at Sarasota Implant’s Sarasota, Florida clinic. Many times, we will recommend replacing the missing tooth with a porcelain crown secured to a dental implant.
This is a two-part dental restoration where a titanium dental abutment is inserted into the underlying bone structure. Once it has bonded with the living bone tissues, one of our dentists can start the process of mounting a porcelain crown onto the implant.
The special porcelain material can be perfectly shaded to match the surrounding teeth in your smile. If you’ve struggled with staining issues in your smile, you might want to also have a dental bleaching treatment performed in advance of the final restoration. This will give you a gleaming white smile and a fully restored tooth.
The final porcelain crown will be cemented in place with a strong dental adhesive to restore the tooth’s presence and appeal for many years to come.
If you live in the Sarasota, Florida area and you need to restore a tooth in your smile, you should call 941-256-2488 to schedule your initial consultation with Sarasota Implant’s dental specialists.
