Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth. Crowns are used to cover a tooth in order to restore its size, shape, strength, and to help improve its appearance.

 

Crowns are also commonly used to cover large fillings, hold dental bridges in place and to cover dental implants. Once it is permanently bonded in place, only a Dentist or Specialist can remove it.

 

With proper care and good oral hygiene, the life of a crown can range from 5 to 15 years.

There are three types of crowns. Each type has its own characteristics and qualities:
Full-Metal

Metal offers strength and endurance. A metal crown may be recommended for back teeth where the forces of biting and chewing are the greatest. A metal crown rarely chips or breaks. In addition, it requires minimal removal of tooth structure. A gold or other high-noble metal crown offers biocompatibility. A base metal crown is often the least expensive treatment options; however, it lacks biocompatibility and may cause allergic reactions or gum line discoloration.

Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal

Porcelain-fused-to-metal offers the benefits of a natural surface color that resembles the rest of your teeth and the strength of a metal substructure. While there are several advantages to selecting this type of crown, it requires the removal of more tooth structure than other types of crowns. This means that there is greater potential for patient discomfort during the treatment procedure.

Full Porcelain

Porcelain is attractive, strong, stable, and highly resistant to wear. It offers a high level of biocompatibility because it does not contain metal. A porcelain crown provides the best natural color match to the rest of your teeth and is an excellent choice for front teeth. The aesthetic quality of a porcelain crown requires that the Dentist be highly skilled in the use of CEREC® CAD/CAM technology.
