A dental crown (also known as a cap) is a covering made outside of the mouth and inserted onto a broken down or damaged tooth in order to protect it from further damage. The crown can be made of many materials but we at Shore Dental only use the following;

  • Ceramic crowns which are aesthetically pleasing and can also be bonded to the tooth for added stability.
    Ceramic crowns require a certain thickness for strength and can only be used in cases where enough room is available. They are done often in a single visit.
  • Zirconia crowns are also tooth-colored, very strong, and require slightly less tooth removal but can appear slightly opaque when on front teeth. They are a great option for teeth in the back and can also be done in a single visit.

When a tooth has started to break down, a dental crown becomes a simple option in which the tooth is minimally shaved down to create room for the stronger material to cover and protect the remaining tooth. A crown is only considered when there is enough healthy tooth left to warrant saving and avoiding tooth loss.

Say ahhhh.
