A crown (or cap) is a strong covering that encases the entire tooth surface, restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Although there are several types of crowns, esthetic zirconia have become very popular. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like many dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced. Crowns are made to match the shape, size and colour or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting, beautiful smile.
If you are missing teeth, you may be a good candidate for dental implants. Also if you currently wear a denture that doesn’t stay in very well, dental implants can help make your denture more retentive.
Dental implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances. They are artificial roots and teeth (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by a dentist or Periodontist - a specialist of the gums and supporting bone. The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance, or restore a patient’s smile!
