Dental implants can rebuild the structure of your missing teeth after you suffer tooth loss. Implants are made out of a strong titanium base, so they’re built to stand the test of time. However, for your implant to become fully functional — like a natural tooth — you need more than just a titanium post. A dental crown can be placed on top of your dental implant to complete the restoration of your smile. Lifelike dental crowns look and feel just like your natural tooth. This is the best way to completely recover from tooth loss.
Implants Provide Structure, While Dental Crowns Provide Function
When you choose dental implants to replace your missing teeth, your dentist will perform surgery on your jawbone to place the titanium post. This post will heal over time and fuse with your jawbone, giving you the bite power and stability that you’d expect from a natural tooth. A dental crown can then fit over the top of the titanium post to complete the restoration. Dental crowns are used to normally to fit over natural teeth, protecting them after they’ve sustained physical damage or undergone root canal therapy. Your dental crown will restore function to your missing tooth.
Dental Crowns Are Fabricated with Cosmetics in Mind
First and foremost, your dental crown gives you a chewing surface so that you can once again comfortably eat foods that you enjoy. However, dental crowns aren’t only about function. Your dental crown is also fabricated with the esthetics of your smile in mind. Dental crowns can be made from porcelain to accurately match the color of your surrounding teeth, as well as the shine. A dental crown made with dental ceramics can fit perfectly alongside your other natural teeth. Implants and crowns present a discreet smile solution that is actually stable enough to work for you.
Each Dental Crown Is Made Custom for Your Tooth or Implant
What allows dental crowns to work so well for each individual, is the fact that each crown is fabricated based on individual measurements. Your crown is a custom solution, made specifically for your implant or tooth. That’s important, because your crown needs to fit comfortably alongside your other teeth. It also needs to fit together comfortably with the tooth on the opposite dental ridge. Your crown and dental implant are built to serve you in the long-term.
