Durable, Well-Fitted & Natural Looking Crowns
High-quality dental crowns, also known as caps, are one of the key tools Dr. Smilovits uses to help preserve decayed teeth and improve smiles.
With over 20 years of experience, and advanced training in gum treatment and dental implant procedures, Dr. Smilovits will provide you with a crown that is well-fitted and long-lasting. This includes getting the crown that is right for you, and making sure it aligns with your natural bite.
Various types of crowns can be used, including all-metal and all-porcelain crowns, and it’s important to get the right combination of look, feel and durability.
Traditional porcelain crowns are made with porcelain covering a metal shell. The metal provides strength and support for the porcelain which gives it a natural appearance. All-porcelain, also called “all-ceramic” crowns, use a ceramic shell instead of a metal shell to support the porcelain.
With advances in technology, these all-porcelain crowns can be used in a variety of situations. Dr. Smilovits will complete a thorough examination and listen to your wishes to determine which type of crown is best suited for you.
When would I need a crown?
A crown, or cap, is a custom-made dental restoration which protects the underlying tooth. You may need a crown because of:
- Extensive tooth decay
- Large metal or tooth-colored fillings, that weaken the remaining tooth
- Broken or cracked teeth
- A tooth that has had root canal therapy
- A misaligned or misshaped tooth
- Teeth that have large fillings that are breaking down and cannot be refilled
