Dental Implant for tooth #9

Crown on abutment on lab model

Dental Implants are not teeth.  Dental Implants are very much like a titamium tooth root.  I took this picture in my Palm Harbor dentist office.  This picture shows a crown on a dental implant in the tooth #9 position.  As is typical of tooth loss, along  with the tooth goes some of the gum tissue and bone.  Hence, this crown delivered in my Tampa area dentist office, is longer than the other front tooth, tooth #8.  If, when this patient smiled, this was visible, I would have used pink porcelain on the crown at the gum line.
