What Is A Crown?

Crowns are required when the original structure of the tooth needs to be restored and cannot be restored by a filling, inlay or onlay. A crown covers all surface of the tooth and restores it to its natural look, function and feeling.

Crowns can be made out of several materials; all-ceramic, zirconia, gold or porcelain fused to metal. How to determine which material is best for you will be discussed at your comprehensive diagnostic appointment.

Why Does A Patient Need A Crown?

The following includes a list of reasons a patient may need a FMR:

  • Teeth which have been lost due to decay or trauma.
  • Teeth and/or old crowns that have been severely worn down.
  • Teeth which have become severely worn as a result of long-term acid erosion (foods, beverages, acid reflux) or tooth grinding.
  • Ongoing complaints of jaw, muscle and headache pain¬† requiring adjustments to the bite (occlusion).
  • Excessive, generalized tooth wear.
  • Over-closure, collapsed bite of the jaw.
  • Missing multiple teeth, collapses the bite.
  • Patients with congenital imperfections in teeth structures.
