Crown vs implant: A dental implant is a titanium root replacement and this is used to replace a missing tooth. A crown is made on an existing tooth when there is weakened tooth structure form decay, fracture, or wear and a strong root remaining. It will provide the strength needed for normal function like eating and speaking. If your existing tooth is healthy enough you may be able to have a crown. see dentist.
