If you’ve lost one tooth or a number of teeth in different areas in your mouth implant crowns will help restore your smile. An implant crown comprises of a titanium post which is inserted into the bone where the tooth is missing, and a crown which is then attached to it. Your dentist will first fit a temporary crown and once the post has successfully fused with your jawbone it will be removed and a permanent crown attached in its place. The great thing about implant crowns is that they are custom made to match your other teeth meaning that it can be difficult to tell which your real teeth are and which are implants.

All On 4 To 6 Implant Rehabilitation is an advanced dental treatment, suitable for people with multiple missing teeth. Unlike removable dentures, All On 4 To 6 implants are a permanent solution for a healthier and better-looking smile.
Traditionally, replacing a full arch of teeth involves multiple dental implants, bone grafting, and a healing period. All On 4 To 6 Implant Rehabilitation involves replacing missing teeth immediately by placing a whole new set of teeth using four titanium implants.
