What Are Dental Crowns?

People with healthy teeth and gums typically require dental exams and cleanings twice a year. However, if you have periodontal (gum) disease, dental crowns are incredibly lifelike restorations that cover the visible portions of damaged teeth to restore their form, health, and function. Adonia Dentistry is pleased to offer crowns in the best materials available, including E-max, zirconia, porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and metal.

  • E-Max crowns are the newest types of crowns, created from a translucent, highly durable material known as lithium disilicate ceramic. They provide the most natural appearance of any available crown material.
  • Zirconia crowns are made from a powdered ceramic material called zirconium dioxide. They are practically indestructible and provide an extraordinary match to your natural teeth.
  • Porcelain/ceramic crowns provide a beautifully natural appearance. They offer a close match to the surrounding teeth for a seamless smile.
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns offer incredible strength and durability. Their main drawback is that they sometimes leave a gray line at the gumline.
  • Metal crowns come in a variety of metals, including gold. They rarely chip or break, but their metallic color is their main drawback.

Why Would You Require a Dental Crown?

Dr. Noufele may recommend a dental crown to restore a weak or damaged tooth, strengthen a tooth after a root canal, repair a tooth with deep decay, restore the appearance and health of a worn tooth, close small gaps between teeth, and restore missing teeth by covering dental implants or supporting dental bridges. Dental crowns also offer a great cosmetic dentistry solution for correcting the size, color, shape, or appearance of natural teeth, delivering dramatic smile transformations.

Inlays and onlays, also known as partial crowns, are dental restorations we use to repair tooth damage when there's not enough tooth structure remaining to support a dental filling, but the damage is not extensive enough to necessitate the use of a dental crown. An inlay typically covers the chewing surfaces of a tooth between its cusps, while an onlay also replaces one or more of its cusps. Partial crowns are incredibly durable, with the potential of lasting 30 years or more.

Dental bridges are restorations that literally "bridge" gaps left by missing teeth. A bridge comes with one or more replacement teeth known as pontics attached to existing teeth or implants on either side of the space, known as abutments. Like dental crowns, bridges come in different materials, delivering incredibly natural-looking and feeling results.

Leaving a gap in your smile can be devastating to your oral health. The adjacent teeth can start drifting into the space, causing crooked teeth and problems with the bite. The imbalance caused by missing a tooth can also lead to periodontal disease and TMJ problems. Replacing one or more adjacent missing teeth with a dental bridge will allow you to chew with ease, speak clearly, and smile with confidence once again!
