Restorative Dental Crowns
Do not let damaged or broken teeth stop you from having the stunning smile you desire. Contact McOmie Family Dentistry today to discuss if dental crowns are the right solution for your broken tooth.
Crowns Repair Damaged or Decayed Teeth
Crowns are a Great Way to Restore Broken Down or Decayed Teeth.
A restorative dental crown is used to repair damaged or decayed teeth and restore a tooth’s shape, size, and strength. While enhancing your chewing ability and smile, a crown can also make the tooth quite strong. With proper care and hygiene, crowns will last for many years.
Depending on the function and desired outcome, crowns can be constructed of several different materials. We can recommend the best type of crown for your dental restoration needs based on the structure of the tooth, chewing placement, and desired appearance. We believe every restorative crown can also be a cosmetically pleasing crown.
There are three main types of crowns; ceramic, porcelain fused to metal and all-metal with several types of material. Each material has its own features and unique character. Dr. McOmie prefers to use superior BruxZir® Solid Zirconia crowns over crowns made of porcelain fused to metal. This allows Dr. McOmie to perform metal-free dentistry and give the patient a beautiful crown with no grey line at the gums.
The BruxZir® Solid Zirconia crowns we use look amazing and, over time, will not reveal the unattractive black line at the gum line from porcelain fused to metal crowns. The crown will not stain or change color and can be made to match the light-transmitting qualities of natural teeth.
Cosmetic Dental Crowns
Crowns can be the right choice for some cosmetic applications. Crowns 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.
BRUXZIR Zirconia Dental Crowns
Can you hit your crown with a hammer and not break it? You can with a Bruxzir crown
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.
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 is backed by Glidewell Dental Lab’s seven-year free replacement warranty.
Your Crown Options
Full porcelain crowns are very esthetic, the most beautiful crown, but also one of the weakest materials. Excellent choice for front teeth. This is most commonly used for veneers.
Zirconia Fused To Porcelain
Zirconia fused to porcelain is a very strong material and beautiful as well can be used in all areas of the mouth. The zirconia framework allows for metal-free dentistry with great strength.
BruxZir® Solid Zirconia crowns are the strongest metal-free crowns on the market. They are milled using CAD/CAM technology. They do not chip or flake like porcelain can. These have all the benefits of a gold crown while being tooth-colored.
Porcelain Fused To GoldZirconia fused to porcelain is a very strong material and beautiful as well can be used in all areas of the mouth. The zirconia framework allows for metal-free dentistry with great strength.
Gold CrownsA crown made of this material can easily last decades. Most people don’t like the look of a gold crown, so their popularity is fading. Some people still choose them in areas that can’t be seen easily.
