Boca Raton dental crowns, in particular, all-ceramic or porcelain crowns, have become the most popular and most frequently used component for modifying a tooth structure or completely replacing it.
Boca Raton Dental Crowns Overview
A dental crown restores a tooth’s shape, size, and strength. It fully encases the visible portion of your tooth or dental implant. Once it is permanently bonded in place, only a Dentist or Specialist can remove it.
Boca Raton dental crowns help improve a tooth suffering from significant decay, congenitally small size, cracks or fissures (caused by bite problems) or trauma.
With proper care and good oral hygiene, a crown can last many years.
When Crowns are Prescribed
A crown may be prescribed to:
- Restore and protect a tooth that is decayed, cracked, worn, or broken
- Protect and support a tooth after a root canal treatment or very large filling
- Hold a prosthetic device or dental bridge in place
- Cover a dental implant
- Improve your smile by covering a severely discolored or misshaped tooth
- Correct functional issue(s)
Dental Crown Types
Dr. Pohl will recommend the best type of crown for your dental restoration needs based on the chewing placement and structure of the tooth or implant that requires protection.
The most popular Boca Raton dental crown procedure is using a PFM (porcelain fused to metal) crowns in posterior positions (molar areas). However, porcelain can fracture on a PFM as well. With the recent introduction of the Bruxzir dental crown, a fracture is pretty much a non-event. The Bruxzir dental crown is an all zirconium product that is virtually indestructible.
Avoiding Bad Dental Crown Cosmetics
Through the selective use of advanced dental components, Dr. Pohl places dental crowns that have no ugly black lines at the gum line, no potential for common allergic reactions, virtually no sensitivity issues and has a masking quality (for dark tooth structures) that is almost unprecedented in today’s modern dentistry.
