Dental Crowns Raleigh NC

Dental Crown IllustrationDental Crowns are more commonly called dental caps, or tooth caps. A crown is a protective shell which can be made of various materials, from metals to ceramics. Cracked, decayed, or otherwise damaged teeth may be repaired by a crown fitted onto them, restoring tooth strength, and returning the original look to the tooth. The procedure begins with a local anesthetic, allowing the dentist to reshape the tooth and preparing it to mold perfectly with the crown. The crown is then securely attached to the tooth, and the tooth strength and beauty is restored.

Crowns can be made out of porcelain, or a combination of porcelain and a metal alloy. Crowns consisting solely of porcelain will have a more natural look, but will be weaker and more susceptible to chipping than a crown made of the porcelain/metal hybrid. Due to the strain caused while chewing or eating, the stronger hybrid crowns are usually preferred for back teeth over their all-porcelain counterparts. However, full porcelain crowns will usually work well for front teeth.

The experienced dentists at Glenwood Village Dentistry have successfully performed countless crowning procedures, and can do the same for you. Contact our office today to learn more about dental crowns and how we can help you!
