For those who are looking to replace a single tooth, we often hear the question, “Do dental implants need crowns?” The answer varies depending on your smile restoration goals.
Do dental implants need crowns?
Dental implants are used in many different ways within the smile. For those looking to restore a single tooth, a dental crown is fabricated and attached to the abutment of the dental implant. This is the connecting piece that is located above the gum line on the implant itself. However, some patients use dental implants to act as a support for one or both sides of a dental bridge or to help retain a full denture. In such situations, different restorations are made to place over the abutment. However, our team at Peninsula Dental Implant Center serving the Santa Clara, California, area will help determine which type of implant and implant restoration best suits your goals.
