Why Choose Dental Crowns?
If you have one or more teeth affected by decay, chipping, cracks, or other damage, dental crowns can be a great solution. Crowns provide support for your teeth but also help to make your smile look complete and natural again. Because everyone's natural teeth are unique, care must be taken to ensure that crowns not only match existing teeth in terms of appearance but also help create a correct bite.
Crowns are a type of dental restoration which, when cemented into place, fully cup over the portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. In comparison, fillings are dental restorations that fill in or cover over just a portion of a tooth.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is permanently cemented over a tooth, in order to restore the tooth's strength, shape, and size, and improve its appearance.
The crown will cover the visible portion of the tooth above and right at the gum line, once it is cemented into place.
Crowns are used primarily to replace old, large, broken fillings or teeth that have been fractured, chipped or discolored. They may be used in conjunction with root canal therapy, bridgework, and dental implants.
Crowns are created in a lab based on molds of your teeth and gums. Crowns are made of various materials depending on the strength requirement and desired appearance. Crowns can be made of porcelain, metal or a combination of both.
