A Dental Crown is a rigid cap, which restores a tooth to its ideal anatomic contours and function, whilst at the same time, protecting the underlying tooth
A dental crown may be needed in the following situations:
To protect a weak tooth 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 misshaped or severely discolored teeth
To cover a dental implant
We offer two basic types of Materials for dental crowns
Porcelian Fused to Metal ( PFM ) dental crowns.
Zirconia Metal Free dental crowns.
The predominant material of choice for All-Ceramic Full Porcelain Crown & Bridges today is either Zirconia or Alluminous materials. These provide a Metal Free esthetic option with a number of benefits…………
By eliminating the need for the supportive metal core, an esthetic all-ceramic crown can be created with reduced thickness of material. This makes them more favorable treatment of choice where there is less of space. Additionally, the elimination of the metal core allows for light transition through the porcelain for better optical effects, life like propertied and a higher level of esthetics.
All ceramic materials continue to evolve in strength and durability, but caution should still be taken for areas of the mouth requiring heavy function.
