Sometimes, a tooth becomes too broken or decayed to be repaired with a dental filling. In these cases, a dental crown is used – and at Sanchez Dental, we can provide you with tooth-colored ceramic and porcelain crowns that will preserve the health of your teeth without damaging your beautiful smile.
How Do Dental Crowns Work?
A dental crown, sometimes called a cap, is a protective covering for a tooth. This prosthetic object fits over the entirety of the tooth and is cemented permanently in place. Crowns are often placed over teeth after decayed areas have been removed; the crown protects the underlying tissue and prevents further damage to the tooth’s structure. Crowns are also a necessary part of any dental bridge.
At Sanchez Dental, we use ceramic crowns or porcelain-fused metal. Both are resilient options that can repair your dental problems while matching your existing teeth. They are a much more natural-looking choice than traditional gold or base metal alloy crowns.
