Dental Implants in Las Vegas
Replacing missing teeth is one of the most vital things a patient can do for his or her smile and oral health. When a permanent tooth is lost, the jaw bone tissue that once supported the tooth root begins to deteriorate. Over time, this can lead to the loss of additional teeth and visible changes to the shape of the face.
Fortunately, advancements in implant dentistry make it possible for patients with missing teeth to once again enjoy a full set of teeth and a confident smile. At the office of Dr. Michael G. Hollingshead, we help patients just like you reclaim their oral health with dental implant restorations. A dental implant is a biocompatible titanium post that is surgically placed within the jaw, effectively taking the place of a tooth’s root. Over time, the implant fuses with the jaw bone via a process called osseointegration.
Following a healing period after placement of the implant, a custom-crafted dental crown is cemented or bonded to the implant, completing the restoration process. The crown is color-matched to blend seamlessly with the surrounding teeth, ensuring a natural appearance. In order to provide each of his patients with the full advantages of dental implant technology, Dr. Hollingshead trusts the proven efficacy and durability of IPS e.max crowns.
IPS E.max Crowns: Restoring Health and Beauty
IPS e.max crowns are widely recognized as the most natural-looking dental restorations available. They are made of a single block of solid lithium disilicate ceramic, promoting strength, durability, and aesthetics for unparalleled appearance and longevity. In fact, research from the New York University College of Dentistry showed that IPS e.max crowns are substantially less likely to crack or chip than other materials commonly used in dental restorations. This includes the popular zirconia-based crowns that are widely used to complete dental implant restorations and bridges. With the power of this robust, aesthetically realistic material, Dr. Hollingshead is able to offer his patients all of the advantages of today’s most advanced implant restoration technology in a way that looks and feels completely natural.
