Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Crowns

What is a tooth crown?

A tooth crown is a cap used to cover a tooth that has a healthy root but is no longer structurally sound. There may be too much decay present, or a severe crack in the surface. Crowns completely cover the visible area of a tooth, creating a brand new outer surface.

Of the three kinds of tooth crowns, which is the best?

That depends on your particular circumstances, and where the crown is to be placed. If it's to be in a front tooth visible when you smile, porcelain would be best, because it will be color-matched to your other teeth.

If the crown is to be on a back tooth you and Dr. Matin can discuss whether porcelain fused to metal would be good, as it's very strong and makes a good chewing surface.
