Dental crowns are almost exactly the way they sound – a crown, or cap, for your tooth. Dental crowns help restore a tooth to its full glory – resulting in a truly aesthetically pleasing appearance. There are many uses and types of dental crowns.
Different Types of Dental Crowns
There are different types of dental crowns that we offer. Dental crowns are often chosen based on your needs and budget. Each type comes with it’s 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.
These crowns are one of the least expensive options, but have to be replaced more often than other types.
This option is very durable while matching the same shade as your teeth. However, they may appear as dark lines around your tooth so many people love them for back teeth that are not as visible and are used more often.
This option is the most durable 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.
