What types of crowns do you offer?
If your tooth becomes damaged – whether it’s due to decay, disease, or trauma – a dental crown is usually the best solution. A dental crown cups over your natural tooth, protecting it from further harm.
At Kuras Dental Associates, we offer four types of crowns: all metal, all porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-metal, and resin. Each of these has its own advantages and disadvantages, depending on your needs.
All-metal crowns are effective for situations where strength and durability are an issue. Some types of all-ceramics are known for their superior aesthetics and are appropriate for teeth that are visible when you smile. Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns offer the middle ground between the two.
For over three years, we have offered convenient same-day CEREC crowns. This remarkable technology allows us to create porcelain crowns that look natural and restore the function of your tooth in just one office visit. You will also be happy to know that, with CEREC, you can skip the annoying temporary crowns and the multiple appointments needed to have a traditional crown placed.
As you can see, you do have options when it comes to choosing a dental crown that best suits your needs. Please contact our Monroe dental office and we will be happy to arrange a complimentary consultation to evaluate your needs.
