Crowns

Services - Crowns

Crowns and fixed bridges are used to treat problems of decay, fractured teeth, cover a dental implant, and to protect teeth which have had root canal therapy. They can also be used to change tooth color and shape.

At the first appointment Dr. Badr will prepare your tooth or teeth for the crown or bridge, take an impression to send to the laboratory, and create a temporary. At the next appointment the new crown or bridge is seated with cemented

A crown is a dental cap that covers a damaged tooth, restoring not just its appearance but also improving strength and functionality. They can be formed to be indistinguishable from any other tooth and can even improve one’s quality of life and self-confidence. Cemented permanently in place, a crown can then be cared for and maintained as easily as a regular tooth.

Crowns can be made in a wide variety of materials:

  • Porcelain: Porcelain is a popular choice for those wanting caps that blend in with their current teeth and to give the optimum appearance. The porcelain is fused to an underlying metal cap for greater durability. However, the porcelain can chip at times and wear down along the gum line to reveal the metal base.
  • Metal: Metal crowns can be anything from stainless steel to gold to silver and beyond. These crowns are much more visually obvious; however, they are some of the strongest allowing for long-term functionality.
  • Ceramic: Ceramic is another option for those wanting a dental cap that closely matches their natural tooth color. Like porcelain, it can be fused to metal, or can be made into an all-ceramic cap. These are not as strong, though, which is why they’re more often employed for front teeth.
  • Resin: One of the cheapest crown options, resin can provide a natural tooth appearance, but is also weaker than most other materials and prone to cracking or chipping.
