Dental crowns

Dental crowns are an ideal way to rebuild teeth which have been broken, or have been weakened by decay or a very large filling. The crown fits right over the remaining part of the tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape and contour of a natural tooth.

Crowns are made of a variety of materials:
• Porcelain fused to metal
• Porcelain fused to titanium
• All porcelain crowns
• Cad cam (all porcelain-zirconia) crowns

Why Is a Dental Crown Needed?
• To protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
• To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
• To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of tooth left
• To hold a dental bridge in place
• To cover misshapened or severely discolored teeth
• To cover a dental implant
• To make a cosmetic modification
