Crown is a type of dental restoration that covers or “caps” a damaged or decayed tooth, restoring its shape, size, strength, and appearance. Crowns are typically made of ceramic, porcelain, gold, or other materials and are custom-made to fit over the prepared tooth.
The crown is cemented onto the remaining tooth structure, effectively encasing it and providing protection against further damage. Crowns can be used to protect a weak or fractured tooth, restore a tooth that has been treated with a root canal, improve the appearance of a misshapen or discolored tooth, support a dental bridge or denture, and correct a bite problem caused by a misaligned tooth.
Crowns can last for many years with proper care, such as regular brushing and flossing, and regular dental check-ups. They can be made to match the color of the surrounding teeth, making them an aesthetically pleasing solution for restoring damaged teeth.
Root canal therapy is a dental procedure to remove infected or damaged tissue inside a tooth (the pulp) and replaces it with filling material. It is done to save a damaged or infected tooth instead of extracting it.
Implant crown restoration is a dental procedure to replace a missing tooth using a dental implant and a custom-made crown. The implant is surgically placed in the jawbone to serve as a replacement for the root of the missing tooth. The crown is then attached to the implant to restore the tooth’s appearance and function.
Partial removable denture is a type of dental prosthesis that replaces one or more missing teeth. It is made of a base, which fits over the gums and is held in place by surrounding natural teeth, and artificial teeth attached to the base. The denture can be removed for cleaning or when not in use.
Complete denture is a removable dental prosthesis that replaces all missing teeth. It is made of a base material, which fits over the gums and is designed to look like gums, and artificial teeth attached to the base. They are used to restore a person’s smile and ability to chew and speak.
Implant-supported denture is a type of denture that is anchored to dental implants rather than relying on suction or adhesives to stay in place. The dental implants are surgically placed in the jawbone, and the denture is then attached to the implants. This provides more stability and security compared to a traditional denture, making it a good option for people who have difficulty wearing traditional dentures.
All-on-4/6 implant restoration is a full arch dental implant solution to replace all the teeth in an arch (upper or lower jaw). Instead of placing individual dental implants for each missing tooth, 4-6 strategically placed implants are used to support a full arch of artificial teeth. The all-on-4/6 approach provides a cost-effective and minimally invasive solution for full arch replacement and can offer improved stability and function compared to traditional dentures.
