Here you can find detailed information about all the oral surgery procedures, which are free of pain at our clinic.

What is put on to the implant and how is it made to look so natural?

What makes implantation special among other things is that the screws are hidden by the gum after the surgery yet this stable artificial root provides support later for the aesthetic, natural-looking crown. This is the most prominent part of all.

As already mentioned implant surgery is followed by 3-4 months healing. By the end of this period the implant screw backed by its special surface treatment is partially woven by the bone tissues under the gum and kept strongly in place by them.

There is one more part that comes in the middle between the screw and the crown: the abutment. This small piece of titanium or zirconium is screwed into the implant. The abutment is there to hold the aesthetic crown.

There are alternatives to choose from when it comes to fitting the crown:

Metal-ceramic crown fitted by glue:

  • Best value option but less aesthetic than a zirconium, let alone a pure ceramic crown

  • Built on solid metal frame

  • It is not translucent

  • Durable, and can function for decades

  • Applied rather for molar than front teeth due to the greyish, dull shade it gives to the crown

  • Glued on permanently thus removal of the crown causes damage

Metal-ceramic crown fitted by screw:

  • Best value option but less aesthetic than a zirconium, let alone a pure ceramic crown. Yet more expensive due to the screwing technique

  • Built on solid metal frame

  • It is not translucent

  • Durable, and can function for decades

  • Applied rather for molar than front teeth due to the greyish, dull shade it gives to the crown

  • Screwed onto the implant thus it is easy to remove in case of damage or in need of replacement

Zirconium crown fitted by glue:

  • Metal-free, causes no allergy

  • Translucent similarly to the natural tooth

  • Durable, can function for decades

  • Designed and fabricated by state-of-the-art computer-aided technology

  • Primarily applied for front teeth but can serve well even for molar replacement as well

  • Glued on permanently thus removal of the crown causes damage

  • More expensive than the metal-ceramic crown due to it more special technology

Zirconium crown fitted by screw:

  • Metal-free, causes no allergy

  • Translucent similarly to the natural tooth
