Today, dental crowns have become a household name in dentistry. Dental offices like Peachtree Corners Dental Associates in Georgia, use dental crowns to improve the function and esthetics of compromised teeth. Modern dental crowns are created from life-like materials like porcelain to achieve a durable and beautiful-looking outcome.
A dental crown or cap is a tooth-shaped appliance placed on a compromised tooth to improve its appearance and structure. Most people confuse dental crowns with veneers, but the two are different. A dental veneer covers the tooth’s front part, but a dental cap encapsulates your entire tooth to strengthen and protect it from further damage.
Dental crowns have numerous cosmetic and functional uses. Dr. Kristina Dawson can recommend a dental crown to resolve the below dental issues:
Modern dental crowns can be created from numerous materials, including gold, zirconia, and porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM). We prefer porcelain crowns because they deliver the most life-looking appearance due to their natural translucency. Porcelain crowns are undetectable once placed on your damaged or otherwise flawed teeth.
Whether installing dental crowns for restorative or cosmetic reasons, the procedure remains the same. Usually, getting a traditional dental crown needs at least two dental visits, whether restoring one or multiple teeth.
