Dental implants are the most ideal tooth replacement option available today. They provide long-term results with a high success rate. They function just like natural teeth and support the surrounding bone.
An implant restoration is the dental crown portion of this type of prosthetic. With accurate and detailed planning, Dr. Van can create a custom implant restoration that will complete your smile, improve your daily function and restore your confidence. If you're in McLean or Vienna and have been hiding a missing tooth, don’t wait, explore your replacement options by scheduling a consultation today!
Getting a dental implant will have a great visual impact as it restores the health and functionality of your mouth. Systemic health can be linked to missing teeth, impacting the facial bone structure and esthetics. Dental implants are made of titanium and have been proven to be biocompatible.
Through detailed planning and design with Dr. Van, successful implants can last a lifetime and will function and appear like natural teeth.
Once Dr. Van has mapped out and designed your treatment course, she will then collaborate with a trusted surgeon to set up your implant placement. This team approach will allow a seamless experience with optimal functional and esthetic results.
Dr. Van will fabricate a temporary prosthesis or provisional crown as she oversees the course of healing. The implant will continue to integrate completely during the next several months. Incorporating all the fine details into her design plan, such as the architecture of the gums as well as the adjacent teeth helps Dr. Van to achieve predictable results.
Once the implant has fully integrated, the restorative process can begin. Dr. Van will take detailed measurements and design a custom implant crown that will look and fit naturally within your smile. You’ll be able to care for it just as you would care for your other teeth with no restrictions with chewing and eating.
