In most cases, it takes 6-9 months for the implant and final restoration. Dental implants require a healing period since a titanium post is surgically inserted into the bone structure. After the post is fully healed, the porcelain crown can be attached to the top. During the healing time, a temporary replacement tooth can be made to fill the space.
