Dental Crowns

 A 3D rendering of a dental crown being placed on a tooth Dental crowns are custom-made coverings that fit over damaged, weakened, or misshaped teeth, providing structural support and improving physical appearance. We recommend them to protect and strengthen teeth that have undergone root canals, suffered significant decay, or experienced fractures.

Dental crowns are crafted from a variety of materials such as porcelain, ceramic, metal alloys, or a combination of these. Not only do crowns enhance a tooth's structural integrity, but they also blend seamlessly with adjacent teeth, thus offering both functional and cosmetic benefits.

Metal Crowns

Metal dental crowns are a reliable option for long-lasting tooth protection. They are typically composed of various metal alloys, such as stainless steel, gold, or other non-precious metals.

Metal crowns are known for their exceptional durability and resistance to wear, making them an excellent choice for back teeth that experience significant chewing forces. They are less likely to chip or break compared to other crown materials. However, their metallic appearance is less aesthetically pleasing, which is why they are often preferred for molars and premolars rather than visible front teeth.

Ceramic Crowns

Ceramic dental crowns, also known as porcelain crowns, are crafted from high-quality ceramic materials. Ceramic crowns are renowned for their aesthetic appeal. Because they closely resemble natural teeth, they are an excellent choice for front teeth or any visible areas in the mouth.

Ceramic crowns are also biocompatible, meaning they are unlikely to cause allergic reactions. While ceramic crowns are often more susceptible to chipping or breaking compared to metal crowns, their lifelike appearance and compatibility with the surrounding teeth make them a preferred choice.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges consist of artificial teeth, known as pontics, anchored between existing natural teeth or dental implants. Bridges help restore oral function and aesthetics, along with preventing problems caused by tooth loss, such as shifting of adjacent teeth and difficulties in chewing and speaking.

There are different types of dental bridges, including traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, and Maryland bridges, each designed to address specific dental conditions. They offer a non-removable and natural-looking solution for tooth replacement, providing patients with a more confident smile and improved oral health.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are metal posts that are surgically inserted into the jawbone, acting as artificial tooth roots. They provide a sturdy foundation for attaching prosthetic teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Unlike traditional dentures, which rest atop the gums, dental implants penetrate the jawbone just like a natural tooth, keeping the jawbone healthy and preventing atrophying. Dental implants boast exceptional stability, durability, and a natural appearance. They also don't rely on neighboring teeth for support.

Onsite Milling of Crowns

Here at Comfort Dental Excellence, we produce our own crowns on-site. Thanks to advanced technology like Computer-Aided Design/Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM), we can mill and create crowns within the duration of a single appointment. This eliminates the need for temporary crowns and multiple visits. We use digital impressions for precise measurements to ensure the crowns fit properly.

However, while chairside crowns are a quick solution, they may not offer the same level of customization or aesthetics as lab-fabricated crowns.
