If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. A single tooth dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root. A ceramic crown is an artificial tooth that mimics the shape, size and colour of your original tooth. It can replace any damaged or destroyed tooth while restoring its functional and aesthetic qualities. Nobody would be able to tell the difference as the dental crown blends seamlessly with the rest of your teeth, you’re going to get your beautiful smile again!
Advantages of Single Tooth Dental Implants
A single tooth dental implant provides several advantages over other tooth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like a natural tooth, it replaces a single tooth without sacrificing the health of neighbouring teeth.
In the procedure a metal fixture is placed into the jawbone (this is usually a screw), and this implant acts as a support or anchor for a new false tooth.

At Aussie Smile Dentist, we understand that a missing tooth is more than just a beauty concern. Even if the gap is not a visible one, you still shouldn’t ignore it. Your teeth are designed to operate together in a full set. With the exception of wisdom teeth, each of them serves a unique function and specific role to give optimum bite and efficiency.
If you are missing a tooth, you are effectively placing more stress on the remaining teeth to replace the functional void it leaves. It is said that for each missing tooth, you stand to lose about 10% of your chewing ability.
