Throughout your life, your teeth may suffer damage for various reasons, like injuries, tooth decay, acid erosion due to diet or wear and tear from age. Dental crowns are a practical way to restore the look and function of a damaged tooth.
They are custom-made caps designed to fit over the affected tooth, giving it a more natural shape and size. At H Williams and Associates, we use the highest quality materials to provide our patients with long-lasting, beautiful crowns that blend in with their natural teeth.
Dental crowns are custom-made tooth caps designed to cover and protect a damaged tooth. They fit over the injured tooth giving it the look and feel of its original shape, size, and strength. Crowns can be used for various purposes, including protecting a weak tooth from further damage, restoring a broken tooth, and supporting a dental bridge. The crown is cemented into place and requires little maintenance afterward.
Dental crowns are available in several types. Two of these are onlays and ¾ crowns. While a traditional crown covers your whole tooth, onlays and ¾ crowns are used when the underlying tooth structure is still solid.
At H Williams and Associates, we offer a variety of dental crowns that are made from different materials. Porcelain crowns are natural-looking and durable, while gold crowns covered with porcelain provide excellent strength and durability. We also offer crowns made of an extra strong ceramic material, and temporary resin crowns, made of a lightweight plastic material.
The cost of dental crowns may vary depending on the type of crown, the material used, and the complexity of the procedure. At H Williams and Associates, we strive to provide our patients with the best quality care at an affordable price.
Dental crowns are used to restore damaged or decayed teeth. They can also support a dental bridge, cover adental implant, or protect a weak tooth from further damage. People who grind their teeth may also benefit from a dental crown.
The procedure for having a dental crown fitted involves:
The crown is then custom-made to fit over the tooth and is attached with a strong dental adhesive.
Dental crowns can last for many years with proper care and regular dental check-ups. In general, porcelain and zirconia crowns can last up to 15 years, while gold and resin crowns can last up to 10 years. With regular check-ups, your dental crowns can last even longer.
At H Williams, we value and respect our patients and want you to enjoy clean, white, straight teeth and ahealthy mouth. This is why we offer the expert and compassionate care you need. Trust us with your crowns and other dental care needs.
