Implant Dentistry has come a long way since I placed my first dental implant in October 1989. Every American dentist NEEDS to be a Cosmetic Dentist because the American public expects it. Not all dentists need to practice Comprehensive Dentistry.
Seen in this picture is a zirconia dental implant abutment in the tooth #7 position. Until relatively recently, this abutment would have been all titanium and the crown over it would have been porcelain fused to metal. Only in rare occasions do I use titanium dental implant abutments in regions of the mouth that show now a days. The definitive crowns will also have no metal, rather a zirconia core.
