Dental Crowns & Cosmetic Tooth RestorationSchedule Appointment
A cracked tooth or one requiring a large filling often needs a full coverage restoration. A crown protects a damaged tooth and is often indistinguishable from the surrounding teeth, which allows patients to feel confident in their smiles. After a large filling is placed, the tooth is prepped for a crown and an impression is taken. We then send this impression to a laboratory to have the crown created. Once the crown is ready, it is cemented onto the tooth permanently.
Because crowns are manufactured in a laboratory, they are extremely strong and custom fitted. A strong well fitting crown is imperative for the longevity of the tooth and restoration.
If you have a broken, fractured or severely decayed tooth, a dental crown may be the solution to prevent further problems.
Gold and silver crowns are often a good choice for molars because of their strength and wear-ability.
Porcelain and zirconia are among the materials we use to match a natural tooth. Depending on the area of the mouth and the aesthetic demand, we choose the appropriate material to make the strongest crown while trying to blend with the natural teeth.
