Your dentist, Dr. John Kivus , offers dental crowns at Gannett Drive Dental to help his patients achieve an optimal smile and oral health. These restorations are strong and reliable and they help improve the function, health, and appearance of a tooth. In addition, there are also different types of dental crowns available to serve different needs. Our dentist will be happy to tell you all about them by listing their details here:
-Ceramic crowns: These crowns are often used for teeth that are visible in the smile because they match the natural color of your teeth. They are made of porcelain and offer natural-looking results.
-Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns: These crowns are like ceramic crowns, only stronger. These crowns are connected to a metal structure and they have a stronger bond. This makes them very durable and even aesthetically pleasing.
-Gold alloy crowns: These crowns are very strong and reliable because they are made of a variety of different metals, like copper and gold. These crowns have a very strong bond with the tooth, they don’t fracture, and they don’t wear away the anchoring tooth.
-Base metal alloy crowns: These crowns are made of non-noble metals. These metals are highly resistant to corrosion and they make the crowns very strong and durable. These crowns also require the least amount of tooth removal before placing the restoration.
