Creating a Durable Restoration
The primary goals of adding a crown to a tooth are to seal the tooth off from the decay-causing oral bacteria and to support the tooth’s structure, making it resilient enough to survive within the smile. This objective means that the crown has to be fabricated in such a way as to make it as durable as possible, given the unique circumstances of each patient’s case.
Our Bellflower dental practice partners with Glidewell Labs to produce the quality of crown you need. This dental laboratory uses their prosthodontic knowledge and experience to craft extremely durable crowns out of the material required in your case. Once the crown is complete and returned to us, our Bellflower dentist places the crown, helping you improve your oral health.
Aesthetic Crown Options
In addition to its primary purposes, crowns can also serve as a way to improve the appearance of your teeth. Self-esteem and the beauty of the smile are often interconnected, so having a crown made of aesthetic materials can boost your confidence in addition to enhancing your oral health.
The most common material we make our crowns out of is BruxZir® Solid Zirconia. Zirconia is a white crystalline material that is known for being one of, if not the, most resilient cosmetic option for dental prosthetics; the BruxZir brand of zirconia is particularly well known for its strength. Teeth with a BruxZir crown look as natural as they did before while being more durable, which is why we recommend and use it more often than any other option.
We have other aesthetic options as well, available on a case-by-case basis. Porcelain crowns are not quite as durable as zirconia, but they can better mimic natural teeth. IPS Empress® glass-ceramic crowns and e.max® lithium disilicate crowns are our brands of choice for porcelain. In select circumstances, we can also provide porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crowns. These crowns may not be as aesthetically pleasing as pure porcelain crowns, but the metallic base gives them better resistance to wear than porcelain alone.
If none of these aesthetic options meet your exact preferences, we can also provide gold crowns by special request.
