We want to help you make the best decision possible, so we’ve put together this post that quickly details the differences between implants and crowns.

Dental implants are a straightforward solution, and they’re increasing in popularity. If you have a tooth that’s badly cracked or damaged or even dead, then an implant is a good choice. First, the old tooth is removed. Then, a titanium post is inserted into that tooth’s place. A crown is placed on top of the post, and the tooth looks so real that only another dentist can tell it’s fake.

A crown is a great choice for people with smaller imperfections in their teeth. They’re also good if you’ve ground down the biting surface of your teeth. Crowns are essentially caps that fit over your tooth, to give it a new surface. They’re placed on your teeth by carefully grinding away the broken portions, then cementing it in place.

There are a ton of different options if you’re looking to fix your smile. For more information, get in touch with us today at 978.369.9090.
