Quite simply, a dental implant can be used if you are missing a tooth and a crown may be needed if you still have a tooth but it is damaged. A crown may also be used as the final restoration on a dental implant as the visible part of the restoration. Whether you are in need of a dental implant, a crown, or another restoration in Las Vegas, NV, you can get the best restorations possible at our office.
A dental crown can function to preserve, protect, and even improve the appearance of a natural tooth. Teeth can become damaged by cavities as well as trauma that may have left them broken or badly chipped. If your teeth are damaged but can still be saved, you might need to place crowns over them to protect them from further damage, especially after a treatment like a root canal. Crowns may also be used as a part of other dental restorations like bridges and implants. If you need a crown for any reason, we will make sure you receive a durable, beautiful crown that will help to improve the appearance and function of your smile.
If you have lost teeth, you may want to consider a dental implant. Dental implants can help to replace any number of missing teeth by working with single crowns, bridges, or even dentures. The implant will be placed in the jaw where the tooth’s root used to be, and the final restoration will be placed on the implant. The result is a stable, durable restoration that will improve your smile’s health in addition to the way it looks and functions. For many people who receive implants, it may feel like they have their natural smile back.
If your smile is damaged in any way, call (702) 666-8584 to make an appointment at our office in Las Vegas, NV. We will do everything we can to save your tooth and protect it with a high-quality crown, and if you are already missing a tooth we can help you decide if a dental implant is the right restoration for your smile.
