Crowns and bridges can make the tooth/teeth strong and will last for many years while enhancing your smile and chewing ability. They can be completed in as little as two office visits and be made of many different materials depending on the application and desired result.
Because the enamel has to be completely removed for a crown application, we prefer to use a more conservative porcelain veneer for cosmetic applications. However, if your teeth are worn, broken or decayed we recommend restorative porcelain crowns for proper treatment. Dr. McOmie prefers to use superior BruxZir® Solid Zirconia crowns over crowns made of porcelain fused to metal.
The BruxZir® Solid Zirconia crowns and bridges we use are much more aesthetically pleasing and over time do not reveal the unattractive black line at the gumline. The crown will not stain or change color and can be made to match the light-transmitting qualities of natural teeth. The BruxZir® Solid Zirconia crown is very strong and are backed by Glidewell Dental Lab’s seven-year free replacement warranty.
