Dental Crowns

What are Porcelain Dental Crowns?

A Dental Crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Dental crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the structural integrity of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement and are made to look just like a natural tooth.

What Types Of Teeth Crowns Are Available?

Teeth crowns have been around a long time and they come in all sizes, shapes, and materials: Stainless steel, gold, base metals, porcelain fused to metal, all-resin, and all ceramic. The material makes a difference. All-ceramic crowns look the most natural. Teeth crowns made out of base metals or stainless steel generally don’t fit precisely, so they can have the shortest lifespan. At Flax Dental in Atlanta, we only use the finest materials because we want your crown to last as long as possible.

Does The Dental Crown Procedure Require Multiple Visits?

Crowns can require multiple office visits. However, with new CEREC technology, a crown can be completed in only one appointment. Click here to read more about same day CEREC crowns.

How long do Dental Crowns last?

A typical life expectancy cited for crowns is 5-15 years. However, when done with the best materials and a high level of skill, they can last much longer. The cost gets lower the longer you have the crown.

Are Dental Crowns Expensive?

Because of the required laboratory work, dental crowns cost more than simple composite fillings. However, Porcelain crowns can still be a bargain.
