What is the best way of replacing a missing tooth or teeth?
At PCAT Dental, we get this question all the time. Whether you are missing all your teeth, a few teeth or simply just one tooth, most of the time, the answer is dental implants.
A dental implant consists of two parts – a titanium part and a porcelain part. The titanium portion is buried under the gum line, within the jaw, so it is not visible. Its’ function is to provide strength and support for the porcelain crown above. The porcelain portion is the crown. It is custom shade matched to ensure maximum aesthetics and carved to meet the specificities of your bite.
Dental implants are not only beautiful cosmetically but also provide excellent form and function. Regardless of whether you are embarrassed by missing gaps in your smile or if you have been dealing with the irritation and inconvenience of loose dentures, it is worth discussing with one of our dentists regarding the possibility of an implant solution customised for you.
