An implant restored tooth consists of:
- The implant, which is made of titanium, is placed in the upper or lower jawbone.
- The abutment can be made of titanium, gold or porcelain. It is attached to the implant with a screw. This part connects the implant to the crown.
- The restoration is a crown, the part that looks like a tooth. It is usually made of porcelain fused to a metal alloy. The crown is screwed or cemented onto the abutment.
