To make sure you have the best smile possible, you may need a crown to cover a tooth and restore it to its normal shape and size.
A crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size and strength, or to improve its appearance.
The reasons you may need a crown include:
– Protecting a weak tooth
– Holding together parts of a cracked tooth
– Restoring an already broken tooth
– Supporting a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of tooth left
– Attaching a dental bridge
– Covering badly-shaped or severely discolored teeth
– Cover a dental implant
There are three types of crowns available in Dr. Michael Green, DDS dental office:
All Ceramic Crowns — Well known around for its capacity to mix with your regular tooth shading. Made of a porcelain-based material.
Non-metal Crowns – Highly aesthetic restorations entirely made of ceramic. It can imitate natural characteristics of teeth, transmitting light like natural teeth. It fit much better in alignment, particularly if only some teeth are restored, rather than all of them.
Zirconium Crowns – A light-colored metal made of zirconium oxide. Zirconia crowns are low-maintenance and durable, but more expensive than porcelain or ceramic crowns. Learn about the advantages of zirconium crowns compared to other materials of crowns. For more information, contact Michael Green, DDS today.
