Cosmetic dentistry is becoming more and more popular these days thanks to the current beauty conscious generation. With loads of cosmetic procedures available to enhance the appearance of the face, it might be confusing to choose the one that fits your specific requirements. We, at Arizona Family Dental, offer you a wide range of cosmetic dental services to suit your preferences as well as budget and to help you gain access to the right information about the dental procedure you are planning to undergo, here is a compilation of everything you need to know about the service. In this page, we are providing you all the details regarding dental crowns.
To cover or hide a broken, discolored, misshapen or damaged tooth, the dentist places a dental crown or cap over the tooth and thus, the appearance of the tooth is restored along with providing strength and support to the damaged tooth. Apart from covering the unappealing tooth, the dental crown is also used to support a bridge in place, protect a decaying tooth from breaking or to wrap an implant. Though dental crowns are mostly applied to adults as a treatment to their permanent teeth, some pediatric dentists may also recommend crowns for baby teeth if the child is unable to follow proper oral hygiene and has severely decayed tooth that can’t be controlled by filling or other measures.
Types of dental crowns
Stainless steel crowns:
- Stainless steel crowns: These are temporary, hollow caps made of stainless steel and mostly recommended for pediatric use. It is applied on the primary teeth to prevent it from decaying and when it falls off to give space for the growth of permanent teeth, the crown also falls off.
Porcelain fused to metal crowns:
- Porcelain fused to metal crowns: As the name suggests, these crowns are made of porcelain fused to a metal base mainly gold, nickel or chromium. The porcelain is the exposing part of the crown and thus, it can be sculpted to match the color and look of the natural adjacent teeth making it a perfect choice for covering front teeth. Amongst all the dentists Phoenix area has, we offer the most convenient price for such crowns at only $695 each, so take advantage of it at the earliest.
- All porcelain: They resemble the natural tooth enamel the most and hence, give an almost natural look to the tooth. However, not as strong as the fused ones, they are more brittle and chip in easier than the metal or resin crowns and are thus, not usually used for the back teeth. But as they provide the most natural look to the tooth in addition to the strength and support, they are widely chosen for replacing the front teeth. We are promoting these dental crowns in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe & Gilbert at a very affordable price of $695 each.
Other materials for making crowns...
- Other materials for making crowns include resin or composite and metal but are less commonly used as they are not physically appealing.
