Implant restorations never shift or move in your mouth and prove a perfectly stable tooth replacement.

1

With proper care, veneers can easily last 10-15+ years, making them a great long-term option for cosmetic treatment.

2

Veneers are made from durable, stain-free porcelain, so your smile will stay bright for years.

3

Treatment is non-invasive, making veneers a great choice for patients looking to avoid extensive dental work.

4

Placing veneers is a pain-free process, and most patients don’t even need a numbing agent during treatment.

5

No special care is required after veneers placement other than healthy oral hygiene habits and regular six-month checkups with your dentist.

Your Options at Stan Kimball, DDS

Types of Implant Restorations

Single-tooth implants are the most common type of dental implant, and we can create a custom dental crown to complete your implant treatment. However, if you are missing many or all of your natural teeth, a series of 4-6 dental implants can be used to restore your smile with a permanent fixed dental bridge or a removable implant denture (overdenture).

What to Expect

The Implant Restoration Process

Typically, we build your restoration as you heal from your implant surgery. While your gums and jaw heal after your implant is placed, you will come into our office for follow-up appointments. When you’re here, we will take images and scans of your mouth, then use this information to manufacture a restoration that fits perfectly on top of your implant. We use high-quality materials and work with the best dental labs to ensure that your tooth replacement will look and feels completely natural. Once your implant is healed, we will permanently attach your restoration to complete your entire treatment.

Which Restoration is Right for Me?

If you are missing a single tooth, we will replace it with a custom dental crown. However, if you receive full-arch implants to replace all of your teeth, you can either choose a fixed dental bridge or a removable implant denture.

Fixed dental bridges cannot be removed once they are placed, so you won’t ever need to take them out to eat, brush, floss, or sleep. However, removable implant dentures (also called overdentures) can be taken out for these daily activities. During your consultation, we will discuss your unique needs to help you determine which option is best for you and your lifestyle.

TYPES OF CROWN PROCEDURES

USED IN DENTAL IMPLANT RESTORATIONS

If you are getting a single-tooth dental implant restoration at the office of Stan Kimball, DDS, that means you’ll be getting a custom-fitted dental crown attached to your dental implant. This crown is designed to look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth. There are two typical types of crown procedures used in dental implant restorations. 

The first type is known as a “cement-retained dental crown.” This type of dental crown is attached permanently to your dental implant using powerful dental cement, a compound that will hold the crown in place for decades with proper application. This is very similar to the process used to attach a crown to a natural tooth. 

Cement-retained dental implant restorations are durable and long-lasting, and offer a very natural visual appearance, making them very popular for single-tooth implants. However, the primary drawback is that it’s very difficult to remove the implant restoration in the future.
The second type of crown procedure used in dental implant restorations is called a “screw-retained dental crown.” Using a specially-designed crown and implant, a screw is used to connect the dental restoration directly to the implant, fixing it in place permanently. 

The biggest benefit of this is that the crown can easily be removed to restore it or clean it, or even to replace it completely if it has become damaged or worn out. Because it can simply be unscrewed from the implant, maintenance is much simpler.

The drawback of this is that the crown is more susceptible to loosening over time as patients chew, eat, and bite. The area near the screw is also sometimes more prone to chipping, but this can be addressed with composite bonding.

BENEFITS OF

DENTAL IMPLANT RESTORATION

The most obvious benefit of dental implant restoration is that it replaces your missing teeth. Whether you are getting a single dental crown to restore a single dental implant, or you have received multiple implants and are getting a dental bridge or set of implant-supported dentures, your new dental implant restoration will completely transform your smile.

In addition, dental implant restorations like crowns, implant-supported bridges, and implant-supported dentures will never shift or move when you eat, speak, bite, or chew. Your smile will look and feel completely natural. 

Your restoration also helps support your oral health. When you bite down on your dental implant restoration, force is sent through the implant into your jaw bone. This, in turn, stimulates the bone and prevents bone loss, which is a common problem with other methods of tooth restoration like partial dentures and dental bridges.

AFTERCARE FOR

DENTAL IMPLANT RESTORATIONS

Single-tooth implants can be treated just like natural teeth. Brush and floss normally, and make sure that you see Dr. Kimball for a teeth cleaning and oral exam every six months.

Implant-supported bridges and implant-supported dentures are a bit different. You will need to use some special tools, such as thin, flexible interdental brushes, to clean them and make sure you keep your mouth healthy. Dr. Kimball will provide you with all of the information and care instructions you need to maintain a healthy smile after your dental implant restorations have been placed.
