These images provide the details needed to create a custom wax-up cast of the patients mouth, reflecting the patient’s smile and simulates expected results. This mold is particularly beneficial prior to treatment as it allows patients to see what they can expect from the procedure.

A biocompatible titanium post is then inserted into the jawbone. During the recovery process, the post fuses with the bone through the process of osseointegration. This creates a stable foundation for the future permanent restoration.
Once osseointegration is completed, Dr. Silvera attaches the abutment to the post, creating a connection for the crown above the gum line. Dr. Silvera then creates the crowns for each patient, allowing the procedure and appliance to be tailored to meet your dental and cosmetic needs. The final result is beautiful teeth with full functionality.
