Dental implants are considered the most sophisticated solution in restorative dentistry. They are made of titanium steel, and are embedded into the jawbone just like how a normal tooth is. On top of the implant is a dental crown that mimics a real tooth.

Another dental appliance used to replace missing, damaged, and decayed teeth are dental crowns. As its name implies, the crowns only act as replacement of the uppermost visible portion of the tooth. If the teeth is damaged or decayed, the affected portions are removed or sanded away. The crowns are then cemented over them.
