More about Crowns
There are several issues which can best be repaired by a dental crown. You may need this treatment if you have a tooth that is:
- Filled with a large, crumbly, leaking metal filling
- Badly broken from trauma, an accident, or injury
- Severely decayed with significant damage to tooth structure
- Treated endodontically (with a root canal)
You should consider a dental crown if you want to reduce the risk of fracture. A dental crown covers the entire visible surface of your tooth above the gumline. It protects your tooth like a miniature suit-of-armor by evenly distributing the stress of biting and chewing across the entire surface of your tooth.
Today’s dental crowns provide more than just superior strength and protection—they also provide beauty. That’s because crowns are made of lifelike materials, such as porcelain, which is translucent (light reflective) just like tooth enamel. This similarity makes it so that your new porcelain crown is virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
You can choose from a full porcelain crown, which is the most natural-looking crown, or you can choose a porcelain-fused-to-metal crown, also known as a PFM crown. These crowns combine the natural look of porcelain with the strength of metal.
