What are Dental Crowns?
A Dental Crown ( or cap) is a restoration that is placed on teeth that have lost a lot of structure. There are various types of dental crowns, ranging from full porcelain to full metal dental crowns. Drs. Karimi and Mehregan will explain the advantages and disadvantages of each type to you.
Dental crowns may also be used to securely attach a dental bridge if the structure of the surrounding teeth is inadequate. A dental bridge is a dental appliance that is used to replace one or more missing teeth. They are designed to be cosmetically appealing and to restore proper occlusion. Like dental crowns, dental bridges are fully customizable and made of various materials, including porcelain and metals. Although not as permanent as a cap, dental bridges are bonded to the surrounding teeth and only removable by your Chino dentist.
Dental crowns are proven to be the most effective way to protect your tooth from fractures or any type of tooth decay. At Priority Dental Group in Chino, we use the highest quality of dental crowns, so you can be assured you are receiving high quality treatment. We can replace all of your older dental crowns with new porcelain ones. Older dental crowns typically show a dark line along the gum line and replacing them is a great solution.
Both dental crowns and dental bridges are created to match the color, height, texture, and overall appearance of your teeth. Most dental crowns and dental bridges will last for life, eliminating the need to replace them unless they fall out or become loose. You may prolong the durability of your dental crowns and bridges by practicing good oral hygiene and visiting your Chino dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings.
