The most difficult of restoration occurs whenfabricating an anterior crown to fit on an implant. We began the process by performing a “virtual reality” “placement” of the implant on a CT scan and manipulating it into the perfect positionat just the right angle and location. Using the surgical guide developed from that virtual “placement”, the implant was positioned precisely between the nerve and the bone. The result was a “simply radiant, simply natural” anterior replacement tooth that matches her natural teeth.

Congenitally missing several teeth, this 15-year-old patient, was referred by her orthodontist who had gone as far as he could with her treatment, and wanted us to take over her case and provide her with a cosmetic make over. After waiting until her growth had finished, we inserted multiple implants and restored them with crowns. Today, she is a very happy international lawyer.
Kathy was unalterably opposed to having an All-on-4, 5, 6, or 8 fixed denture prosthesis. She wanted a prosthesis that functioned and looked like it was fabricated on natural teeth. In spite of very thin bone at severe angles, we were able to create very aesthetic crowns on “tooth” abutments.
