Replacing Two Front Missing Teeth

By Dr Adam Glassford

Before: With a Two Tooth Denture in Place

This case shows a 2 tooth denture replacing the upper central incisor teeth. The patient disliked the denture and came for a consultation to consider implants as a permanent replacement.

Before With the Denture Removed

Implant Placement with Abutments in Position

Two individual dental implants were placed in the central incisor positions and you see the Zirconia abutments fitted that retain the fixed crowns.

After

The layered ceramic crowns are permanently bonded to the zirconia abutments as two individual teeth. Flossing is possible between the crowns just like natural teeth.

After

Final result showing harmony with the smile and lip line.
