A crown is a dental restoration that completely covers or surrounds a tooth. Crowns can be used to restore strength due to loss of tooth structure but can also be used to enhance any tooth with undesirable color, shape or size. Crowns can be made out of numerous materials and we are pleased to offer Zirconia crowns which are made from the white metal Zirconia.
Many patients are concerned with the look of traditional crowns and do not want the “black line” look close to the gumline or a “flat” color, both issues are solved with Zirconia crowns. The look of Zirconia crowns and bridges is so close to natural teeth and reflect light so beautifully that it is hard to tell the difference. We also offer BruxZir Solid Zirconia crowns which have no porcelain overlay so they are more resistant to chipping or breaking in the mouth. These are so strong they can be used anywhere in the mouth and can withstand the biting pressure of the front teeth as well as back teeth grinding.
