Dental Crowns

What are  dental crowns?

A porcelain crown is used to completely cover a weakened, broken down, or endodontically treated tooth above the gum line to protect it. These crowns are colored and shaped to match your own teeth, and can look and feel almost exactly like a natural tooth. Today’s dental crowns are created to reflect light much in the same way your natural teeth do, giving your smile a natural, healthy look. Let Pelham Dental Arts restore your smile with high quality dental crowns or bridges.

Dental crowns are a great option for a missing tooth, lost though decay or injury.

What are the benfits of my dental crowns?

Porcelain crowns and bridges can give you a natural-looking smile that feels and looks great. A porcelain crown is used to completely cover a weakened, broken down, or endodontically treated tooth above the gum line to protect it. These crowns are colored and shaped to match your own teeth, and can look and feel almost exactly like a natural tooth. Today’s dental crowns are created to reflect light much in the same way your natural teeth do, giving your smile a natural, healthy look. Crowns are a cosmetic restoration used to improve your tooth’s shape or to strengthen a tooth. Crowns are most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or have portions destroyed by tooth decay. 

A crown is a “cap” cemented onto an existing tooth that usually covers the portion of your tooth above the gum line. In effect, the crown becomes your tooth’s new outer surface. Crowns can be made of porcelain, metal, or both. Porcelain crowns are most often preferred because they mimic the translucency of natural teeth and are very strong. Crowns or onlays (partial crowns) are needed when there is insufficient tooth strength remaining to hold a filling. Unlike fillings, which apply the restorative material directly into your mouth, a crown is fabricated away from your mouth. Your crown is created in a lab from your unique tooth impression, which allows a dental laboratory technician to examine all aspects of your bite and jaw movements. Your crown is then sculpted just for you so that your bite and jaw movements function normally once the crown is placed.

What are dental crowns made of?

Pelham Dental Arts uses a porcelain crown “Metal free” that will match the color of your natural teeth.
In order to provide an accurately fitting crown, an impression of the tooth is made. This impression is the basis for the shape and size of the crown. Once the custom fit crown is made, it is then bonded to the needy tooth. The practice of proper oral hygiene habits will help in the maintenance of the crown.

What are the benefits of dental crowns?

Your crown will be a permanent, attractive replacement to its natural predecessor, and in many cases, improve upon the appearance of the tooth it is replacing.
