Cosmetic Solutions with Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a custom made artificial tooth which completely covers a chipped, cracked or damaged teeth. The tooth-shaped cap/crown is placed over a tooth to cover the tooth in order to restore its original shape and size, improving the strength and appearance of the tooth. The crown, when bonded into place, fully encases the entire visible portion of your tooth above the gumline. Crowns can be made from a number of different materials. All ceramic crowns are milled out of blocks of solid porcelain to match the shade and color of your natural tooth.

Most commonly, dental crowns are a restoration procedure for teeth needing more structural support and long-lasting protection than large fillings or inlays. Dental crowns can be used in conjunction with a variety of procedures in cosmetic dentistry.

  • Dental Implants: Dental Crowns are used to cover the metal implant portion  of a missing
  • Dental Bridges: Dental crowns on the teeth adjacent to the bridge serve as an anchor for the bridge support
  • Root Canal Therapy: Dental crowns protect brittle teeth after root canal therapy.

Advantages of Dental Crowns

Support for the Tooth

Dental Veneers conceal the front surface of a tooth, dental crowns cover the entire damaged tooth structure, restoring functionality, shape, size, and strength to the tooth. This is especially important for posterior teeth where up to 150-200 lbs. of pressure can be placed on the teeth while chewing.

Long Lasting

Dental crowns are designed to last several years when accompanied by regular dental cleaning appointments and good oral hygiene. On average, they last upwards of 10 years, but generally longer depending on the type of crown and oral health of the patient.

Preserve The Tooth

Dental crowns seal the damaged teeth from bacteria in the saliva which can cause teeth to deteriorate. They also hold together cracked teeth, preserving their functionality.
