When it comes to the art of protecting, preserving, and restoring your damaged teeth, lifelike esthetics are as important as proper oral function. In many cases, a dental crown is the perfect treatment to save a damaged or diseased tooth. If you’ve ever had to treat invasive tooth decay or a cracked/fractured tooth, then you may already be familiar with the advantages of a dental crown. However, what you may not know is that a lifelike crown can also replace a lost tooth with the help of a dental implant. The beauty of dental implant crowns is that they closely mimic your healthy, natural teeth, not just in appearance, but also in the way your healthy teeth support your jawbone and surrounding oral structures.
Indistinguishably Lifelike Replacement Crowns
Dental crowns borrow their name from the portion of your tooth that they replicate and replace, which is also called the crown. It’s the only visible part of your tooth and is responsible for biting, chewing, and enunciating your words, as well as filling out the ranks of your smile. Today, modern crowns are custom-crafted from innovative dental porcelain that’s tinted to match your teeth’s natural color, as well as specially-layered to mimic your enamel’s light-reflecting properties.
The Strong Foundation of an Implant
Like a dental crown reproduces your tooth’s top portion, a dental implant is the replica of your tooth’s root(s) and is surgically inserted into your jawbone. Made from biocompatible titanium, a dental implant is designed for your jawbone to fuse to its surface, holding it in place as securely as it anchors your natural teeth roots. The dental implant allows a modern dental crown to do more than simply protect a weak tooth; it can replace a useless or missing tooth’s entire root-and-crown structure.
