Implant Restoration in Montclair, NJ
Are you an adult who is missing one or more permanent teeth? Are you embarrassed by gaps in your smile? Are eating and speaking challenging since you lost your tooth? If you said “yes” to any of these questions, then you may wish to seek the help of our dentists Dr. David St. Ledger and Dr. Vanessa Ballentine at Upper Montclair Dental Associates to improve your oral health. One of the most popular ways to replace missing teeth is with dental implants, a restoration that is as close to real teeth as you can possibly get.
How We Can Help with Dental Implants
For a dental implant to work it needs a dental crown. If you are replacing a single tooth then you will require a dental crown to complete your implant. The crown is a tooth-shaped structure that sits on top of the implant. This is the part of the implant that everyone will see when you smile. The crown that we use for implants is no different than the porcelain ones used to restore damaged teeth. While implants are designed to last a lifetime, your implant crown, bridge, or dentures will need to be replaced every few years. Don’t worry! Our dental team at Upper Montclair Dental Associates can provide you with the beautiful restorations you need to maintain your implant for the rest of your life. We make it simple to replace old, worn, or even damaged crowns.
Crowns and Restorations that Look Like the Real Thing
Our goal is to always provide our patients with crowns and other implant restorations that are beautiful, durable, and lifelike. Your restoration should always resemble real teeth and help you feel most confident. We understand how much tooth loss can impact not only your health but also your self-esteem. Dr. St. Ledger and Dr. Ballentine want to restore that confidence with the help of artfully crafted implant restorations.
Good Candidates for Dental Implants
Since the implant process does take time and requires two minor procedures, it’s important for our team to assess your health and to make sure that implants are right for you. Ideal candidates for implants will maintain good oral and general health, and won’t have any uncontrolled preexisting health problems such as diabetes or heart disease. You may need to schedule a checkup with your regular physician to make sure you are healthy enough to undergo implant surgery. While most healthy adults are perfect candidates for implants, it’s important to assess your health beforehand.
