Dental implants are a popular option for patients who have lost one or more teeth. The posts will be placed in the jawbone, providing an artificial tooth root that serves as a strong and stable foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth.
Crowns are placed over existing teeth to improve their appearance and strength. Crowns are most commonly made of porcelain, a combination of porcelain and metal, or entirely of metal. Our dental crowns are strong and made of high-quality materials, and our goal is to use a crown that is both functional and beautiful.
Though dental implants and crowns can be used to restore the function and aesthetics of a smile, there are a few different factors to consider when choosing between dental implants and crowns. One is the amount of damage to the tooth. If the tooth is severely damaged, a crown may not be strong enough to hold it in place, and an implant would be a better option.
Another factor is the health of the surrounding teeth. If the surrounding teeth are not in good condition, they may not be able to support a crown. In this case, an implant may be the better option.
Finally, the cost is also a factor to consider. Implants are typically more expensive than crowns, but they can last longer and may be a better investment in the long run.
Dental implants are typically more expensive than crowns, but they also offer several advantages, including improved durability, increased comfort, and better oral health.
