More on Crowns:
Porcelain crowns which look like natural enamel, are used for several procedures. Porcelain bridges use adjacent teeth to replace missing teeth. Covering stained, discolored teeth, cracked or severely broken down or decayed teeth.
Your dentist takes an impression of your teeth and sends them to a lab where custom crowns are made just for you. Dental crowns reinforce teeth and allow it to withstand various degrees of pressure, meaning you can enjoy eating without the worry of ruining your tooth.
More on Dental Implants:
Dental implants consist of a titanium post surgically inserted into your jaws to replace missing tooth root. It creates stability, strength and prevents the weakening and shrinkage of your jawbone. The dentist then allows 3 to 6 months for osseointegration to occur. Your Huntsville dentist then re-opens the area above the titanium post, inserts a screw, places an abutment above the screw which secures a crown on top that matches the rest of your teeth.
Some advantages of dental implants include:
- Restoring one tooth without drilling other teeth, or replacing a few teeth or all of your teeth.
- The dental implants can last a lifetime.
- Restoring your bite and chewing function.
- Unlike dentures, dental implants are fixed in place and don't fall out of place.
