Enhance Aesthetics Anatomy of a dental implant

A dental implant designed to replace a single tooth is composed of three parts:

  • the titanium implant that fuses with the jawbone;
  • the abutment, which fits over the portion of the implant that protrudes from the gum line;
  • and the crown, which is created by the restorative dentist and fitted onto the abutment for a natural appearance.
