What Are Dental Crowns?
Crowns are dental prosthetics that repair teeth damaged by long-term decay or accident. Our dentist creates a crown from tooth-colored porcelain or ceramic and bonds them into place over the prepared tooth. Dental crowns also form a part of dental bridgework, replacing missing teeth and restoring the proper balance and function to the mouth and bite.
Dental implant restoration also uses dental crowns. A tooth crown connects to the tooth-root implant, representing the only visible part of the dental implant unit.
Bright Tiger Dental – South Eucliduses dental crowns in many different situations. We use crowns to repair teeth that have been broken or fractured and to cover the remnants of decayed teeth that have been cleaned and treated. If you have a large filling in a tooth, we can hide it with a dental crown, preserving the vital care the tooth needs while making it look brand new.
Dental crowns also become the final step in root canal procedures, protecting the remaining tooth from further damage and decay.
Types of Crowns
Dental crowns are made of porcelain. PFM crowns fuse porcelain crowns to metal for extra strength. These crowns consist of a metal core with tooth-colored porcelain baked on and then shaped to create the crown. Both PFM crowns and porcelain-only crowns, custom-made in a dental lab, may require several visits to complete the dental crown restoration.
