In our office, we use the NobelSelect implant posts and abutments from the innovator and leader in the dental implant field, Nobel Biocare. The posts are manufactured from chemically unchanged variants of commercially pure titanium. Our surgeon, Dr. Kapoor, prefers these implants because they attach to the bone more rapidly and promote rapid bonding as well. The exact size, shape, and configuration of the titanium portions of the implant are custom-designed to work precisely for each implant that she places.
When I design the crown of a dental implant, I use the best material for the individual specifications of the patient. I use no metal, and I make sure that the material chosen is compatible with your personal body chemistry.
I select the ceramic base for your crown based on a whole series of factors, including the type of tooth needed, the best match for your existing smile, and the durability of the ceramic. I will always let you know what choices you have and let you decide what you want. After all, it's your smile!
Our exclusive lab will custom-craft the crown to my specification, and my master lab technician and I will make any necessary adjustments to color, shape, or size right here in our lab. I make sure that every crown is just right before I place it permanently.
