What are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are artificial substances used to cover or cap damaged teeth. Teeth can become damaged in a number of ways, including:
- Weakness from wear and tear over time
- Fracturing or breaking
- Dental decay due to disease or medication
- Degradation of tooth strength due to poor oral hygiene
Covering a damaged tooth with a dental crown is an essential procedure, as damaged teeth can cause more serious mouth and gum issues when left untreated and exposed.
Additionally, crowns can be customized to match the existing color and shape of your teeth in order to achieve a more natural appearance.
How are Dental Crowns Made?
A custom dental crown is made through a process that begins with obtaining impressions of your jaw and teeth in order for our dental experts to craft the most custom and specifically made-for-you crown possible.
Once the impressions have been obtained, the crown can then be made out of a variety of material – which material is used for you will depend on your specific needs and what will best match your existing teeth. These materials include:
- Metal alloys
- Ceramic materials
- Composite resin
