A tooth that is flawed or even at risk of being lost completely is an uncomfortable situation for many adults. Not only does this impact your oral health, but your confidence and self-esteem can suffer as well. When your smile is the first thing people notice about you, you want to make sure you’re displaying your most beautiful confident smile to the world. If you need a tooth replacement, some of the most common Buckhead dental procedures that first come to mind are dental crowns and dental implants. And while these procedures are both wonderful solutions for the right problem, you want to make sure you’re getting the solution that works best for you.
What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a cap that looks very similar to your natural tooth and is used to restore the shape, size, strength, and appearance of your tooth.
The dental crown is cemented firmly in place to completely cover and protect any visible portion of your tooth.
Can a Dental Crown Work as a Tooth Replacement?
Dental crowns are a great option if your tooth is severely discolored or you have a large filling that has left the rest of the tooth fragile. A dental crown serves as an enclosure for your tooth, so while you’re keeping your remaining tooth protected, you also get the natural-looking aesthetics of a healthy tooth.
When it comes to dental crowns, this procedure works best if you have part of your remaining tooth you want to salvage and protect. If the entire tooth is gone, you need a new root, which is where dental implants come in.
At Buckhead Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, each dental crown is handmade and customized to perfection per patient.
What is a Dental Implant?
If you’re looking to get dental implants in Buckhead, Dr. Bahar Nia at Buckhead Cosmetic & Family Dentistry and Buckhead Implant Center can provide you with a beautiful natural-looking tooth implant that will look and feel like you never lost a tooth.
Dental implants at Buckhead Cosmetic & Family Dentistry are essentially titanium screws that work just like the natural root of a tooth. This process can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months depending on the location and number of implants needed, with as little as one day for qualifying candidates with the special teeth in a day procedure. Once the implants are in place, a dental crown is placed on top for it to function just like your natural tooth.
Why Choose Dental Implants in Buckhead for a Tooth Replacement?
When you choose dental implants from Buckhead Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, you’re choosing the most optimal procedure for a tooth replacement that when placed properly, never has to be replaced again in your life.
When it comes to dental crowns, and even bridges and dentures, these procedures address short-term cosmetic tooth replacement problems, but they can’t stop much larger issues such as bone loss. Dental crowns require grinding down on your teeth and placing a cap for a temporary solution while dental implants do not compromise your healthy teeth.
Not only do dental implants serve as a full tooth replacement, but they also work like your natural teeth to stimulate your jaw and stop bone loss which is a result of missing teeth. Each dental implant is handmade by Buckhead Cosmetic & Family Dentistry’s master ceramist locally in Atlanta.
