Mark is a small business owner who works with the public all day long, so when he broke his upper anterior tooth (tooth #8) going without it was not an option.
His other teeth were in good health and it did not make sense to work on the adjacent teeth to fabricate a bridge. A dental implant is the new standard of care in the 21st century because it replaced the missing tooth in a way similar to your natural tooth and allows for better hygiene to keep the implant and adjacent teeth healthy.
In Mark’s case the missing tooth #8 was replaced using an endosseous implant and full ceramic crown joined by a custom zirconium abutment. Mark was very happy with the results of his new tooth and the natural smile he can give his customers.
