A missing or broken tooth can be an embarrassment, and dentures can be a hassle. Wouldn’t you like to get your smile back with a life-long solution?
Dental implants can be used to replace several teeth or a single tooth. We understand the pain and embarrassment of missing teeth, and we’re dedicated to giving you a smile you can be proud of again.
At Dr. Gleave’s office, we will help you choose the best option for dental implants based on several factors. Every mouth is unique, and we want to provide you with the dental implants that will best enhance your natural smile!
Dental implants are typically made of titanium with a hydroxyapatite coating to facilitate osseointegration. Dental implants are restored with an implant abutment and a crown. The abutment can be made from titanium or Zirconia, and Zirconia is best used in the anterior region (front of the mouth) to enhance esthetics.
Crowns can be made using three basic designs: porcelain fused to metal, porcelain fused to zirconia, and all zirconia. We will help you choose the best option depending on esthetics and function, but we typically recommend all zirconia for the extra strength and dependability.
Together we can determine if dental implants are the right solution for you and your smile; call Dr. Gleave’s office today at 801-288-1818.
