The tooth can be divided into two basic parts – the root and the crown. A cemented restoration that partially or completely covers the outside of the clinical crown is referred to as a dental crown or cap.
There are many situations that require a tooth to be restored with a dental crown. Below is a list of the most common:
Dental crowns can be made out of a gold alloy, other metal alloys, stainless steel, all-porcelain, composite resin, or zirconia. There are advantages and disadvantages to all of the types of dental crowns. Visit All Smilez Dentistry today and discuss your options with a dental professional.
Dental crowns should last on average from 10 to 20 years. Dental crowns are still susceptible to fractures and cavities so it is important to continue treating them as you would your natural teeth. Regular dental check-ups and daily good oral hygiene will help keep your smile healthy and happy.
The cost of dental crowns varies depending on the materials used, so contact an All Smilez Dentistry professional today to discuss your options. We have friendly staff members available to help you understand your dental benefits and out of pocket costs for dental crowns.
