A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant and is typically bonded to the tooth.
Crowns would be the restoration of choice when a patient desires to have his or her smile aesthetically improved but when partial coverage (i.e. a veneer) is not an option for one or more reasons.
A dental crown may be needed in the following situations:
Types of dental crowns
Porcelain-fused-to-metal dental crowns look most like normal teeth. However, sometimes the metal underlying the crown's porcelain can show through as a dark line, especially at the gum line and even more so if your gums recede. These crowns can be a good choice for front or back teeth.
To solve the problem of the dark line around the gums we offer the porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns with all-ceramic around the gums
Bridges are made by creating a crown for the tooth or implant on either side of the missing tooth/teeth, with a pontic in between. They are made of either porcelain fused to metal or ceramics.
