Custom-Made Dental Crowns
Sometimes, the best way to restore a tooth is to cap it completely with a lifelike dental crown. The crown absorbs your bite pressure while protecting the healthy tooth structure underneath, preventing more extensive damage to the tooth. In many cases, a crown (coupled with a dental implant) can also be the best option for replacing a lost or extracted tooth. Modern dental crowns are all fashioned after the specific measurements of a patient’s tooth; however, each crown can be crafted from a different restorative material to meet your specific needs and preferences.
Different Types of Crowns
Modern dental crowns are all crafted according to unique, highly detailed measurements, but the material used for your crown will depend on your specific needs and preferences. For instance, a back tooth that is exposed to the most bite pressure may benefit from a metal crown, or one made from porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM). For more visible teeth, Dr. Jenkins might suggest an all porcelain or zirconia crown, which offers the most lifelike and cosmetically appealing results. To determine which crown is right for you, Dr. Jenkins will perform a thorough examination and consult with you one-to-one during your appointment.
