Selecting the Right Dental Implant Restorations
Dental implants are used to replace broken or missing teeth, and picking the right type and material for your implant-supported restorations can make a big difference. Dr. Gianni Franceschi provides and places dental implant restorations in many styles and materials at his practice in New Port Richey, FL. Implant-supported restorations deliver strength and longevity for your smile, and are always custom-made to fit your unique bite.
Dental Implants Overview
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed in your jaw. These posts are able to replace lost tooth roots and will fuse with your bone, becoming permanently fixed in your jaw. Because implants form a stable foundation, you can enjoy improved oral health and comfort, and superior support for your restorations.
Types of Restorations
You have multiple options to choose from when restoring your smile, and the right restoration for you will depend on your needs. If you have lost one tooth, a single implant post and a customized dental crown can fill the gap. If you have lost multiple adjacent teeth, you can receive a dental bridge. Bridges are typically supported by two or more dental implants.
If you have suffered widespread tooth loss, a denture may be more suitable for you. We offer both full and partial dentures. A partial denture can be supported on as few as two dental implants, and a full denture will require four or more implant posts.
All of these options are often suitable for full mouth reconstruction patients with varying needs. Dr. Franceschi will evaluate your smile and oral health during your consultation to help you select the best implant-supported restorations for you.
It is essential to pick quality implant-supported restorations that can significantly improve your aesthetics and comfort.
Strong & Aesthetic Materials
Dental implants are a life-changing investment in your smile, so it is important to pick a restoration that you can be satisfied with for years to come. For implant-supported restorations, Dr. Franceschi offers a variety of high-quality, durable materials.
- Porcelain: This traditional choice is still able to provide lasting, natural-looking restorations for patients.
- Porcelain fused to gold: Securely attaching porcelain to a solid gold base provides aesthetic benefits on the surface with the durability of metal for added strength. Combining materials is especially beneficial for larger restorations.
- IPS e.max®: This advanced material is incredibly strong, and comes in a wide variety of shades and types to be virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
- Zirconia: An incredibly strong material, zirconia offers superior strength and aesthetics to provide a lasting, lifelike smile.
The placement of the implant-supported restorations is a quick and simple procedure. If you have already completed all necessary surgeries and procedures leading up to your placement, Dr. Franceschi will only need to attach abutment or connector pieces that will secure your new restorations in place. Immediately following the procedure, you will be ready to eat and speak confidently with your new implant-supported restorations.
