The patient's right lateral incisor was congenitally missing (it never developed). It was restored using an oseointegrated dental implant supported all ceramic crown. The patient's left lateral incisor was congenitally undersized and was built up using highly esthetic resin bonding technique, layered to mimic the translucency and opacity of a natural tooth. The patinent was thrilled with the visually pleasing and functionally sound result.
Dr. Singer performs dental implant treatment by attaching artificial teeth or dentures to implants anchored in the bone below the gum line. After the anchor has been surgically placed in the jawbone, bone and gum grow around the implant, holding it firmly in place.
An artificial tooth or denture can then be attached to the implant. The end result is a long lasting, secure tooth that is virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. Dentures are secured in place, are less bulky and function signifacantly better.
