WHY GET A CROWN?
Sometimes a tooth structure is weakened due to significant decay or subsequent fillings. In these cases a crown restoration is required. Watch the video to learn more about whether a dental crown might be right for you.
WHEN ARE DENTAL CROWNS NEEDED?
There are many different situations where dental crowns are needed to restore a severely damaged or decayed tooth. While these decisions can be made in discussion with your Mountain View Dental doctor, dental crowns are usually used in situations where a root canal is performed, the tooth is severely broken or chipped, or if an old crown needs to be replaced. Dental crowns can not only help with the appearance of one’s smile but also with the functionality of the tooth as well. Broken and decayed teeth can cause a lot of pain as well as other issues with the surrounding teeth. Dental crowns can prevent further damage and pain as well as improve the overall appearance of your teeth and smile. At Mountain View Dental we can bring back your confidence and brilliant smile with a simple dental crown treatment.
WHY WE USE PROCELAIN
Every dental office uses different materials for their dental crowns just depending on what kinds their doctors prefer as well as what they see are best for their patients. At Mountain View Dental, we provide our patients with porcelain dental crowns because of the many benefits that come with using them. With porcelain crowns, the artificial teeth and your actual teeth look and function the same. The crowns are tooth colored and can blend in perfectly and give you a natural and radiant smile. They also provide the teeth a lot of strength and prevent leakage by providing a good seal. The strong crown can also help prevent tooth decay and breakage.
Compared to other types of dental crowns, porcelain fused to metal are among the best at being affordable and highly aesthetic. They are also among the strongest and most resilient to cracks and chips. Which is why these crowns are ideal for teeth in the front and in the back of the mouth; you get the best of both worlds with this option. Another advantage of these crowns is that they can be used even when the surrounding tissue and gums are not healthy, even though it is much more difficult in these situations.
WHAT IS THE COST
The cost of dental crowns depend largely on how many crowns are needed as well as the material used. At Mountain View Dental, our porcelain crowns are very affordable and durable and we also offer flexible financing options so you can get the dental treatment you need without breaking the wallet.
