What is a dental crown?

Purpose: Cover & restore a damaged tooth without extraction

A dental crown, also known as a “cap” is used to restore teeth without actually removing or implanting any teeth. The crown is placed over an existing damaged tooth and is cemented in place.

What is a dental implant?

Purpose: Replace a tooth with a fully functional implant embedded in your jaw

Dental implants are installed securely into your jaw bone and are modern dentistry’s best answer to replacing teeth. The implant itself is fused with your bone, and a natural-looking crown makes up the visible tooth portion. Multiple implants can also be combined in a bridge.

What is a dental veneer?

Purpose: Add a luminous white coating to your teeth

A dental veneer is a thin coating of white, gleaming porcelain which is used to cover the surface of a tooth. Unlike crowns, bridges and implants, veneers are primarily aesthetic, and are less commonly used for dental health problems.

Here is an overview of the differences between each dental solution:

    Amazing blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there
    that I’m completely confused .. Any recommendations? Appreciate it!

    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here
    and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create
    your theme? Fantastic work!
