What Is A Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a restoration used to strengthen a damaged tooth or to improve its shape, size, appearance, or alignment. When cemented into place, a crown fully encases the part of the tooth that is visible about your gum line. Our porcelain crowns are incredibly durable, usually lasting up to 15 years, and in some cases even up to 30 years! Your new restoration will look and feel just like a natural tooth!
Why Are Crowns Needed?
Dental crowns may be needed to address a variety of concerns. They are often used to protect weak, cracked, or fractured teeth. They are the choice restorations if you have cavities too large for fillings, or if you have had a root canal treatment. Crowns are also used to attach bridges or cover dental implants, restoring the look, feel, and function of missing teeth. They often play a role in improving your smile by covering discolored or misshapen teeth.
Inlays and onlays, also known as partial crowns, are dental restorations usually used to repair teeth that do not require dental crowns but are too damaged for dental fillings. Inlays typically cover a damaged chewing surface between the cusps of a tooth, while onlays also replace one or more of the tooth cusps. Our partial crowns are long-lasting, durable, and strong, often lasting up to 30 years. They prolong your tooth's life, preventing the need for more dental treatments down the road.
All-ceramic crowns look and feel remarkably like natural teeth yet they provide the same, if not more, strength and durability of a standard crown. Ceramic crowns are custom made for each patient with zirconia, the same substance used to make synthetic diamonds, and porcelain. The vast array of design options available with ceramic crowns make them the ideal restoration for front teeth.
