The Challenge: “W.” lost the upper right lateral incisor and the upper left first pre-molar due to gum disease. The loss of bone around these teeth had rendered them unsalvageable. “W.” preferred not to use neighboring teeth to support false teeth, she wanted the ability to floss normally between the teeth, and she wanted restorations that would last a long time. The Solution: After dental implants were placed by one of St. Louis’ most accomplished Implant Surgeons, I placed two all-ceramic crowns on the implants.
These crowns were custom shaded to give the most natural appearance possible. “W.” says she is very happy with her new smile. She also reports the implants feel much stronger than her natural teeth and that she can eat with confidence again. Dental implants are the ideal way to replace a missing teeth. For over 40 years, dental implants have proven to be extremely reliable. Implants do not depend on natural teeth for support. Implant restorations CANNOT get decay.
