Crowns in Manteca CA
Crowns provide your tooth with coverage when your natural tooth needs a combination of structural support and camouflaging. Crowns also act as replacement teeth in bridgework and as the restorative finishing to dental implants. A crown looks like your natural tooth, but is artificial and is custom-fitted to your mouth for a beautiful finish and a natural-looking, attractive smile.
What Are Crowns?
A crown is a “cap” that looks like a natural tooth. This prosthetic fits over your natural tooth, over a dental implant post, or fills in empty spaces within bridgework. Crowns are composed of a variety of materials, which Dr. Damle will discuss with you. Dr. Damle will steer you toward the crown material that functions and looks best based on the treatment site location within your mouth. Look over the following types of crowns for a clearer understanding of your options:
- Ceramic: All-ceramic crowns are composed of porcelain. Their translucent appearance gives beautiful, natural finish to your smile. Ceramic crowns are best suited to your front teeth. We use Emax for our ceramic crowns, which provides a gorgeous, esthetically pleasing finish.
- PFM: PFM, or porcelain-fused-to-metal, is a crown composed of porcelain on a metal base. These crowns also lend a natural, translucent finish. However, their metal base offers additional structural support. PFM crowns combine durability and aesthetic quality, and work best with middle teeth that you use for chewing.
- Zirconia: Zirconia crowns are composed of solid zirconia. They are also translucent and mimic your natural teeth convincingly. Dr. Damle will use these on your back teeth because of their sturdy, durable design. Our Bruxzir zirconia crowns provide strong restorations for patients who regularly grind their teeth or clench their jaws.
- Porcelain: Like ceramic, porcelain crowns provide a string restoration that blends seamlessly with your smile.
- Bruxzir: Made using.
What Are the Benefits of Crowns?
Crowns can restore the function and appearance of a damaged tooth, which cannot remain standing on its own, but that is healthy enough to avoid extraction. Crowns provide protection and coverage, for a beautiful appearance and comfortable chewing and speaking. Crowns are custom-fitted to blend in with your smile, and to align properly with your bite for comfortable wear.
Am I a Good Candidate?
You make a good candidate for crowns if you have had a root canal and your tooth requires coverage and support, if you have a tooth with a large filling that needs protection to avoid cracking or breakage, if you are ready for your dental implant restoration, or if you have chosen a bridge to fill in missing teeth. Crowns also cover teeth that have experienced severe decay or damage. Dr. Damle will prep your natural
