Porcelain Dental Crowns
A dental crown is placed over a damaged tooth and permanently cemented into place. Sometimes referred to as a tooth “caps” because of the way it fits over the tooth structure, crowns will improve both the strength and appearance of the damaged tooth. It will also keep it from declining even more.
Like many other chronic medical conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure, it often presents without any symptoms, so it’s important to go to your dentist for regular examinations and cleanings. The earlier gum disease is detected, the easier it is to treat.
Dental implants are made of titanium. They are placed into the jawbone where the root of the missing tooth used to be. The titanium post of the implant connects to a replacement tooth, which is called a crown. The complete dental implant plus crown not only looks like your natural tooth, but it will function nearly the same as well. Dental implants can be used to replace one tooth, several teeth, or an entire mouth of missing teeth.
