A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Dental crowns tend to refer to a restoration of the tooth that covers all or most of the existing tooth.
Dental implants are used as a permanent solution for missing or extracted teeth. No additional teeth need to be altered for this type of procedure. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root replacement in restorative dentistry procedures to help replace a tooth. Once the procedure is completed, the implant will feel and resemble one of your own teeth.
