Partial, Full, and Implant-Supported Crowns
Dental crowns have been one of dentistry’s longest-standing restorative treatments, and for good reason. While dental crowns have undergone several different iterations over the centuries, their design and main function haven’t changed much. Generally, a dental crown’s purpose is to cap a tooth that’s been damaged or compromised to protect, restore, and preserve it. However, we also offer partial crowns that can offer more conservative tooth restoration, as well as implant-supported crowns that we can attach to a dental implant to replace a lost or extracted tooth.
Choosing the Best Crown for You
- Full dental crowns – A full dental crown, or traditional crown, is one that’s designed to mimic the entire top portion of your tooth. The restoration is bonded in place over your tooth, stopping any damage from growing worse and restoring the tooth’s ability to support your bite function.
- Partial dental crowns – A partial crown is one that doesn’t completely cap your tooth, but rather restores only the damaged portion of it. The restoration is carefully designed to be bonded in place over the appropriate area of your tooth, avoiding the need to modify your entire tooth structure to accommodate a full crown.
- Implant-supported crowns – If you’ve lost a tooth, then a dental implant and crown may offer the most lifelike solution for replacing it. An implant post can be inserted into your jawbone to replace the lost tooth’s root, and the crown can be attached to it to complete the restoration of your smile.
