Dental implants are screw shaped devices used to replace missing teeth. Once the surgical procedure is completed and the dental implants healed, the specialist cosmetic dentist needs to decide on the best abutment/post to use for optimal results with the final restoration (cosmetic crown or cosmetic bridge).
In general abutments can be made of titanium, zirconia, custom casted metal preferable gold and hybrid materials (metal with zirconia). They are platform independent and should be used with their relevant implants system.
The cosmetic dentist and specialist technician form a team working together to ensure that the final dental crown or dental bridge look natural and match the shade of existing teeth once its placed over the dental implants.
The advantage of restoring a dental implant with a custom abutment is that dentists get the optimal design and control over setting of finish lines, the emergence profile and size and shape of the abutment. These dental implant abutments apply to any position in the mouth and excel in the aesthetic zone.
Once the final restoration (dental crown or dental bridge) is fixed on top of the Implant…it is crucial to maintain good oral hygiene at home and visit the cosmetic dentist regularly to maintain the health of your implant and gum.
