More about Crowns

It’s easy to damage your teeth and lose a large amount of tooth structure, especially as you get older. As the years go by, more and more damage is done to your teeth and to your smile. Severe tooth decay, grinding your teeth at night, dental trauma, and everyday wear-and-tear are just a few of the many ways you can damage your teeth.

Even if you’ve lost a large amount of tooth structure, there is a good chance dental crowns can help restore your teeth! For extensively damaged teeth, your dentist may need to place a post inside your tooth and build up a metal framework around the post, to provide support for the dental crown.

A dental crown is much more effective at protecting your tooth than a dental filling. That’s because a dental crown covers the entire visible surface of your tooth above the gumline. The full protection keeps your tooth from breaking when you bite down or chew.

Dental crowns can bring damaged teeth back to life by increasing the strength of your teeth. The great news is, they can also make your teeth and your smile more beautiful too! That’s because one of the most commonly used crown materials is light-reflective porcelain which looks just like natural tooth enamel. A full porcelain crown is a great choice for front teeth!

You can also choose porcelain fused to a metal underlay, known as a PFM (porcelain-fused-to-metal) crown. These crowns are excellent for back teeth, where you need increased strength for chewing.
