dental crownsA tooth consists of two parts – the root and the crown. The root is covered by gums, and the crown is what you see when you open your mouth. If the crown is damaged in any way, it compromises the durability and longevity of your tooth. Fortunately, dental crowns are available to ensure healthy and long-lasting teeth!

The Importance of Dental Crowns

If the natural crown of your tooth has been compromised, it’s important to cover it with a dental crown. If you choose to forego a crown, the possibility of further damage exists. Several situations that require a crown include a root canal, large filling, cracked tooth, severe grinding or clenching, and broken cusps.

However, if you simply are unhappy with the look or color of a tooth, crowns can also be used to enhance your smile and adjust the tooth’s appearance.

Different Types of Dental Crowns

Most adults typically have 32 teeth, and each tooth requires special treatment. That’s why choosing the right crown for your tooth is imperative for success. Discover the different types of crowns we offer:

  1. Metal crowns are extremely durable and used for the teeth located in the back of your mouth.
  2. All-porcelain crowns resemble your natural teeth and are used in the front of your mouth.
  3. Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are a combination of metal and porcelain crowns to ensure durability and a natural look.
  4. All-zirconia crowns are the strongest ceramic crowns available.
