A crown or tooth cap covers the entire tooth surface, which effectively restores it to its original shape and size. It protects and strengthens the tooth surface that cannot be restored with dental fillings or other restorations.
Although there are several types of crowns on the market, the ones made of porcelain are the most popular because they’re made to look and act like your real teeth. There are several kinds of porcelain crowns, including porcelain fused to metal, e-max™, zirconia, and Empress Esthetic™. Dr. Brusky will determine which type of crown is the best course of treatment for your diseased tooth following a thorough examination.
Why Choose Crowns to Strengthen Your Tooth?
Crowns look like strong, healthy teeth. When placed over a tooth that has been broken or fractured, the new cover provides the ultimate backup support. The tooth underneath can live under the new shell’s protection, and the crown that covers it is designed to last indefinitely.
Dr. Brusky can create the crown to match the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth, giving you a more complete and radiant smile long into the future.
The process for placing a dental crown is gentle with short and convenient treatment times. Dr. Brusky will prepare your tooth for a temporary crown, which is glued to the old tooth’s surface. After 7-10 days, the permanent crown will be affixed over the tooth and bonded in place for long-term success.
How Much Do Porcelain Crowns Cost?
The cost of dental crowns varies depending on the materials used, among other factors. Talk to Dr. Brusky to get an accurate quote for dental crowns that may be used to improve your oral health.
