In our eyes, the more conservative a restoration, the better. With crowns, we are able to maintain as much of your natural tooth as possible while fixing damage and restoring the look and function of your smile.
What are Crowns?
Crowns are a small shell places on the top of the tooth. They are made with a non-toxic and durable material. Crowns can fix small cracks and fractures, repair a tooth after more invasive procedures, and prevent further damage from decay.
What are Crowns Made Of?
There are 5 basic types of crowns made currently in dentistry, (Gold, Porcelain, and Porcelain fused to precious metal, Porcelain hybrids, Acrylic and Zirconium). There are 4 basic ways to make crowns, (Casting, Milling, Pressing and Layering. All these crowns have different applications and costs, and combinations for your specific need are the rule rather than the exception. Dr. Smith will happily explain to you why what seems to be easy to advertise and sell to you may not be a good idea for your dental need. Certainly, a dentist that limits him/herself to one type of crown justifies using only that one, and as the old saying goes, “if you only have a hammer, everything looks like a nail!” Ask Dr. Smith what he thinks will be right for you, and why!
