dental crownsCrowns are used on your teeth to restore the natural shape of your teeth weakened with large fillings or root canal therapy. Crowns are made basically three ways; solid metals, porcelain on metals, or solid porcelain like materials. Porcelain on metal crowns offer many advantages, including strong and durable teeth, restoring natural look of your teeth and healthier teeth and gums. All porcelain crowns look like a natural tooth. Your new crown is matched and custom made to match your natural teeth.

Crowns are placed on your teeth in various situations. Some of them are as follows:

A large filling in a tooth requires a crown. In cases where a cavity is large, just placing tooth filling may weaken the tooth. A filling replaces the cavity, but since there may not be a lot of natural tooth structure left, the tooth is much more susceptible to the risk of fracture in future.

Teeth that have had a root canal usually need crowns for strength and aesthetics. Any tooth that had a root canal will become more brittle with time. Also,the tooth may darken or look less vibrant due to the nerve being removed. If a tooth had root canal treatment, a crown placed should be placed.

Porcelain on metal crown is placed on a tooth with large cavity to restore the damaged tooth and restore it to its original strength and appearance. Recent advances in adhesives, including stronger porcelain materials available today allows us to make crowns or fillings out of porcelain.
