Dental crowns are almost exactly the way they sound – a crown, or cap, for your tooth. Dental crowns help to restore a tooth to its full glory – resulting in a truly aesthetic appearance. There are many uses and types of dental crowns.


Different Types of Dental Crowns

There are different types of dental crowns that our practice offers. Each type with its own set of advantages and disadvantages.

    All ceramic or all porcelain
    These types of crowns fully match the color of teeth for a concealed appearance and work very well with those who may have allergies to metal. They are great for front teeth.

    Porcelain-fused-to-metal
    This option provides strong durable stability while matching the same shade as your teeth.

    All metal
    This option provides the most strength of them all at the cost of aesthetic appearance. They do not match the same color as teeth.

Restore Your Smile Today

Dental crowns are often used to finish off other procedures such as dental implants. They also replace severe cases of tooth decay that have resulted in a large amount of tooth loss. Crowns provide dentists a way to restore form and function to your tooth without the need for an extraction. It is always best to save as much real tooth/enamel as possible.
