What Are Dental Crowns?
If you suffer from a significantly damaged tooth, it probably needs extra support to make sure it functions properly and can withstand normal bite pressure. A dental crown is a common solution to substantial damage.
Crowns are custom-shaped and made to fit over a damaged tooth. It can be crafted from metal, porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, or zirconia. Metal ones typically go on the molars because these teeth are less visible and need to withstand more bite pressure. Porcelain is more common for teeth towards the front of your mouth. Whichever material is best for you, our dentists will ensure it is comfortable and that it blends seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.
