Decayed or otherwise damaged teeth can interfere with chewing and speaking, causing pain and making you feel self-conscious.
At Cary Prosthodontics in Cary, NC, our doctors can restore the appearance and function of your smile with a dental crown.
What makes dental crowns a trusted dental restoratio?
Porcelain Crowns Can Rebuild Your Tooth and Restore Your Smile
A Trusted Solution
Our crowns are crafted from strong dental grade porcelain which can withstand the normal forces produced by biting and chewing. If cared for properly, dental crowns can last up to a decade or more.
At our practice in Cary, NC, we use advanced dental porcelain to craft crowns which both look and feel natural. Our doctors can carefully match the color of your crown to surrounding teeth so it blends seamlessly into your smile.
Dental Crowns Provide a Lasting Solution
Replacing Missing Teeth with Dental Crowns
In some cases, a tooth becomes too decayed or damaged to support a traditional crown. In such situations, your dentist may recommend removing and replacing the affected tooth with a dental implant and crown. Implant-supported crowns provide significant benefits compared to other tooth replacement options and can ensure your smile stays healthy for years to come.
Porcelain Crowns May Not Be the Best Solution for Every Patient
While our high-quality tooth-colored crowns are recommended for most patients, some circumstances may require a material that can withstand greater force. Typically, the dentist will advise patients suffering from bruxism and temporomandibular disorder to consider other types of crowns. This is because these conditions exert excessive pressure on the restoration and can cause them to chip or break.
You will have the opportunity to weigh your options during your consultation at our Cary office. After a thorough examination of your bite, our doctors will make their professional recommendation. As restorative dentistry experts, we are confident we can help you achieve the best possible outcome.
