  • You will be given an anesthetic
  • A hole will be drilled in the jawbone in which a post will be placed
  • The abutment, which is tooth-shaped and cut down to receive a crown, will be screwed onto the post
  • A dental crown, made either of porcelain or metal, and is then attached to the abutment by either screwing it on or by adhesive
