Dental Implant Crowns

I prefer this method of making dental implant crowns. The accuracy is unparalleled. My patients like that we don’t have to gag them with molding material.

Basically a video wand is put in your mouth rather than the big trays.

My lab partner works with a corresponding software to make the zirconia teeth.

  1. Hi Dr. Amin,

    I’ve worn a bridge crown for over 25 years on teeth 6-11 after I lost the roots of teeth 8-10. The crown of tooth 11 is now loose and some dentists are telling me to redo my crown and others are telling me I have too much bone loss for implants. I want to ask your trusted advice of what I should do so my question is if it is possible to get a bone graft and implants for teeth 8-10 or should I have my bridge redone from teeth 6-12?

    I appreciate your extensive knowledge and time for this.

  2. Hello Dr. Amin, I had broken my front two teeth under my gum line by being hit with an elbow playing basketball. I had to pull bone down with braces in order to have new implants. That was done 10 years ago. The implant never looked great and it cracked slightly by the gum line. I have been consulting with a new dentist who told me that when they placed the new implants that they were placed slightly lower then the gum line and that’s why they placed the crowns over the gum instead of a more natural look of having them appear that they are coming out of the gum. Is there anything I can possibly do at this point and time to have my new implants obtain that natural look of coming out of the gum line? Thank you for your time.

    1. These are very difficult to answer without seeing you. Generally speaking I prefer an implant that is more deep than more shallow. That allows more “running room” to develop a tooth emerging from the gum line rather than sitting on the gum line. I believe you contacted my staff member Angie and had some discussion with her. I hope things work out and you can get some solutions!
