What You Need to Know About the Various Materials for Dental Implants

Dental implant is one of the best options in the market for those whose teeth have been knocked out. While many are already familiar with this dental procedure, very few are actually aware on the kind of materials used in creating a natural-looking tooth.

The Crown

The crown used for dental implants can either be made of ceramic or porcelain. Between the two, however, it is porcelain that is considered to be closest to the actual color and texture of a real tooth. This is the reason why it is a popular choice not only for dental implants, but also for dental bridges and other dental works. Apart from this, porcelain is also considered to be the stronger material between the two.

While ceramic can also blend naturally with your other teeth, it is not something that is recommended for everybody.
