Dental crowns are used for a variety of reasons, including on back teeth after a root canal or teeth that are broken, chipped, or worn.
Benefits of Crowns
Dental crowns are permanent fixtures to your teeth, unlike removable dentures. They are able to restore function and aesthetics to your smile, giving you the confidence to smile, eat, talk, and use your mouth normally. Durable ceramic crowns allow patients with various teeth issues to once again have full function of their mouth and it can give confidence to patients that were hiding unsightly teeth.
How are crowns made?
Getting a crown used to be a long ordeal. Fortunately, there have been many innovations in dental technology that have streamlined the process. Renken Dentistry is always on the cutting edge of technology and efficiency, and we think you’ll be excited about new advancements in dental crowns.
New technology has reduced the time needed to measure, mill, and finish high-quality white ceramic crowns. A computer completes the measurements and creates the ceramic crown, which means a more precise outcome. The dental crowns we develop are strong, durable, comfortable, and very long-lasting.
Types of Crowns
There have been many crown types available over the years:
- Metal crowns
- All-ceramic crowns
- All-porcelain crowns
- Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns
- Pressed ceramic crowns, often capped with porcelain
Our ceramic crowns are a favorite amongst patients because they are long-lasting, look natural, take much less time to complete, are less prone to chipping, and can even be more affordable.
