Houston Cosmetic Dentist, Ronald W. Konig DDS, FAGD, LVIF answers a common question regarding dental implants and crowns and can they look natural. The answer is yes. The photos below show a case where a dental implant was used to replace a fractured tooth.
In the photos notice:
1) The white "custom abutment" was used to shape the tooth similar to its natural root as opposed to a stock abutment one size fits all
2) The gum tissue shape and contour was preserved at the time of surgery and supports the crown naturally
3) The crown has no metal and has been custom shaded to match the adjacent natural teeth in terms of shade, texture, and size
Dental implants and cosmetic dentistry can go hand in hand and are both an art and science. Natural and healthy results are possible with proper planning and implant design.
