Due to the large defects and weak roots, these teeth are non-restorable. These teeth were extracted and 2 dental implants were placed (Figure 3). Temporary crowns were immediately placed by your dentist in Downtown Los Angeles onto these implants to begin contouring the gum tissue to match the surrounding teeth (Figure 4).
After healing, a veneer was prepared for the other front tooth and a final impression was made of the 2 implants (Figure 5). A picture of the final impression is shown in (Figure 6).
A cast was made from the impression to design the abutments and ceramic crowns for the dental implants in Los Angeles (Figures 7 and 8). All of our restorations are planned and designed by myself and our in-office dental laboratory technician. This close relationship allows us to communicate about the fine details to achieve an optimal functional and esthetic result.
The final restorations are shown in (Figure 9). We were able to achieve a natural result and symmetric gum contour across the front teeth.
Cases involving trauma to the front teeth are complicated and careful planning is essential. Prosthodontists are experts in tooth replacement and are uniquely trained to handle these difficult cases. Give us a call to schedule a consultation.
