Dental Crowns | Cosmetic Dentistry Center | Newton, MAWhat are Dental Crowns?

A Dental Crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Dental crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the structural integrity of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement and are made to look just like a natural tooth.

Lithium Disilicate Crowns

Lithium disilicate crowns are matched to simulate natural dentition for a more natural framing of the gingiva around the crown.

What Are Crowns Made Of?

Current science has produced tooth-colored materials such as porcelain, zirconium, lithium disilicate. These materials are lifelike, very hard, long lasting and non-staining. In the past dentistry was limited to metal-based or gold crowns bonded with an overlay of porcelain.

When Is a Dental Crown Needed?

A dental crown may be needed in the following situations:

  • Protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
  • Restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
  • Cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of teeth left
  • Hold a dental bridge in place
  • Cover misshaped or severely discolored teeth
  • Cover a dental implant
