A dental crown is a cap that is specifically customized to cover the damaged area of a patient’s tooth. Dental crowns restore the shape and size of a damaged, decayed, or missing tooth, increasing its strength and the way it functions.
At Pacific Highway Dental in Kent, Washington, Dr. Jhuty offers patients customized dental crowns made from a variety of durable materials that can guarantee the dental restoration lasts for many years to come.
Dr. Jhuty recommends dental crowns in the following circumstances:
Dental crowns can be made from different materials, such as:
Ceramic and porcelain are two of the best choices for dental crowns as they match the tooth’s natural color. Many patients prefer these types of crowns because they provide a more natural appearance.
Dental crowns made from this material are less expensive and do not wear down or fracture easily.
Zirconia dental crowns were recently introduced in dentistry and have already become rather popular as they provide better aesthetics and last longer. They also have a lower risk of cracking and chipping compared to other materials.
This type of dental crown is also a good option as it combines the strength of metal with the customizability of porcelain, offering functional and aesthetic benefits. It is also considered a more affordable dental crown option.
Other common materials used for making dental crowns are metals like gold or silver.
Just like your natural teeth, dental crowns require proper maintenance in order to function well and last longer. This is why your oral routine should include daily brushing and flossing, as well as regular dental visits.
