Crowns are restorations that can restore a badly damaged tooth to its original shape and appearance as well as returning its strength and physical integrity. They are a valuable component of restorative dentistry and can be used in a variety of situations providing beautiful and long lasting results for the patient.
Implants can be used to replace missing teeth and non-restorable teeth if they are beyond repair. They provide great opportunity to the patient by permitting healthy adjacent teeth to be left undisturbed. Implants are versatile in that they can support individual teeth/crowns when only a single tooth is being replaced. They can also be used to replace multiple teeth, support bridges, and even support or retain removable prosthetics. In addition to the benefit they provide in supporting replacement teeth, they can also aid in preserving healthy bone surrounding them within the jaw.
Whether supported by natural teeth or implants, crowns can be seamlessly fabricated alongside other porcelain restorations, such as veneers and bridges, to return stability and continuity to the dentition.
