Dental Crowns vs Implants?

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone would care to share their stories on the advisability of dental crowns vs implants.

Some background - due to years of wear and tear, and an unfortunate incident biting into a chicken burger at a restaurant that will remain nameless - my front upper teeth look terrible.

One dentist who seems quite good suggested a full crown for my upper teeth. He is based in Switzerland.

He said that a porcelain crown, properly maintained, could last 10 to 15 years.

I have heard that implants last longer, but the treatment is more invasive and more expensive.

Has anyone out there had good experiences with dental crowns of this type? Are there comfort/discomfort issues? And with implants?

Any dental provider recommendations would also be welcome, if possible.
