More about dental crowns

Damaging your teeth is easier than you may think. Trauma to your face or jaws can do considerable damage to your smile, as can everyday wear-and-tear and teeth grinding/clenching.

Dental crowns can protect your teeth, because they cover the entire visible surfaces of your teeth above the gumline. When you bite down on a crown, the biting force is spread across the entire surface of your tooth, protecting your tooth from breaking. Dental crowns work like little suits-of-armor to guard your teeth and protect vital tooth structure.

Dental crowns strengthen your smile, and they can also make your smile more beautiful. That’s because one of the most common crown materials is porcelain, a material that reflects light. It also closely resembles natural tooth structure, so a porcelain crown is virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

A full porcelain crown is the most aesthetically beautiful crown, making it the perfect choice for front teeth. For back teeth, you may need more strength, so a Zirconia crown is likely a better option. These restorations use the strongest crown material, Zirconia, and are a great choice when you want aesthetic beauty as well as strength.
