There have been vast improvements in dental technology, creating dental treatments that are less invasive and more durable than ever. One area in general dentistry that has improved over the years is dental crowns. The options available to protect a damaged tooth with a crown or a cap are quicker, more aesthetically pleasing and more durable than ever. At Sugar Creek Family Dental, we offer beautifully crafted dental crowns that can protect and complete your smile.
Dental crowns are used as a protection device for damaged teeth. Those that undergo root canal therapy will receive a dental crown to protect the remaining tooth structure. Dental crowns can also be used to protect teeth with large or multiple fillings that could easily crack under pressure. In addition, dental crowns are used in conjunction with dental bridges to anchor artificial teeth in place for a beautiful smile.
Metal crowns were once the best choice for back teeth needing a durable surface for chewing. Porcelain crowns were reserved for the front or anterior teeth, helping keep a bright, white smile. However, there have been advancements in porcelain crowns that make them more durable so that you can keep your teeth white and beautiful, reducing the appearance of metal in your mouth.
Dr. Capati is an expert at creating comfortable, beautiful porcelain crowns that will protect your teeth while keeping your smile looking natural and stunning. In most cases, you cannot differentiate a crown from the rest of your natural teeth, making your dental treatments invisible. We use the latest technology and imaging to match your new crown to your existing teeth so that you will have a lovely smile that will last for many years to come.
