At The Dental Offices of Alexander DiFilippo, D.D.S.
in Wooster, OH
, we provide crowns and implants
as restorative treatments for your teeth. Learn more about whether a crown or implant is right for you before discussing them with our dentist.
When teeth get fractured or severely damaged, sometimes a dental crown
can be placed over them as a means of additional support and improve its appearance, alignment, or shape. Unlike dentures, crowns are permanent fixtures that are cemented onto your teeth or implants. Crowns come in a variety of different makes and looks, including porcelain, ceramic, gold, or other metal alloys. Depending on which tooth needs a covering and your dental history, certain crowns materials may be better than others.
allow people to replace missing or extracted teeth. The implant consists of an artificial tooth and screw which, when placed into your jaw, hinges tightly. After a brief healing process in which the jawbone grows around the screw (osseointegration), the implant becomes securely held in place and acts as an indistinguishable substitute for a natural tooth. For more information about the procedure, ask our dentist today!
