More about crowns

A dental crown is a unique dental restoration because it covers the entire surface of your tooth above the gumline. The crown fits over your tooth like a glove, where it is permanently cemented in place. Dental crowns provide maximum protection of tooth structure to prevent breakage. Dental crowns are right for you if you have:

  • Cracked, fractured, or broken teeth
  • Severe tooth decay and loss of tooth structure
  • Aging, eroded, or worn-down teeth
  • Weak, brittle teeth from previous root canal treatment

In addition to providing great protection, crowns also improve the look of your smile! Many crowns are made of porcelain, which is a light-reflective material that looks just like natural tooth enamel. In fact, after a full porcelain crown is placed, it is virtually indistinguishable from your teeth!

Full porcelain crowns are beautiful, and they are a great aesthetic choice for teeth that are visible when you smile. For back teeth, however, you need the most chewing strength possible, so you may want to consider a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown, also known as a PFM crown. These crowns have a metal underlay for added strength as well as a porcelain shell to provide cosmetic beauty, making them the perfect combination of strength and beauty that your smile deserves.
