More about crowns
If you have teeth that are badly damaged and have lost a significant amount of their structure, chances are fillings alone won’t do the job—you're going to need dental crowns to restore your whole smile.
You need dental crowns if you have teeth that are:
- Badly damaged, broken, or fractured from an injury or trauma
- Severely decayed with significant loss of tooth structure
- Badly eroded or chipped from aging, habitual teeth grinding, or general bad habits
- Weakened from a large dental filling or root canal treatment
Dental crowns strengthen and rebuild your teeth by covering the entire visible surfaces of each tooth above the gumline. The overall protection of a dental crown means that when you bite down, the strong biting forces are spread evenly across the entire surface of each tooth, protecting your teeth from breaking.
Dental crowns are needed to restore and rebuild your smile, but you may also want dental crowns to enhance its look as well. Dental crowns can replace unsightly, crumbly metal fillings with sparkling, natural-looking porcelain crowns
Porcelain is light-reflective and looks just like natural tooth enamel, making your porcelain crowns virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. Full porcelain crowns are a superb choice for front teeth.
You can also choose porcelain-fused-to-metal, known as a PFM crown. These crowns have all the beauty of porcelain combined with the strength of a metal underlay. PFM crowns are the perfect choice for back teeth where you need increased strength for chewing.
