Dental Crowns in Bala Cynwyd, PA

Dental Crowns in Bala Cynwyd, PA

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped shell placed over what’s left of the visible structure of a tooth to restore its shape and function. Crowns can be used to fix a damaged tooth or to improve the appearance of a misshapen tooth.   

At The Dental Spa, we offer crowns made of different materials, including metal, porcelain, and composite resin. The chosen type of crown will be cemented over a damaged or decayed tooth, restoring the tooth's shape, size, strength, and appearance, as well as protecting it from further damage.  

The Different Types of Dental Crowns

Metal Crowns

These crowns are made of gold or other metal alloys, making them durable and strong. However, they are noticeable when you smile due to their metallic color.

Porcelain-Fused-To-Metal Crowns

These are a combination of porcelain and metal. The porcelain part of the crown is fused to the metal base. This type can be matched to the color of your natural teeth.

All-Porcelain Crowns

These crowns are made entirely of porcelain and can be matched to the color of your teeth. They are more aesthetically pleasing than metal crowns but are less durable.

All-Ceramic Crowns

These crowns are also made of porcelain but are not as strong as metal crowns. They can be matched to the color of your natural teeth. 

Zirconia Crowns

These crowns are made of zirconia, a solid material. They are less aesthetically pleasing than other types of crowns but are very strong and durable.

Composite Resin Crowns

These crowns are made of composite resin, a material similar to plastic. They may not be as strong as metal or ceramic crowns, but they can be matched to the color of your natural teeth. 

The Procedure for Getting Dental Crowns

Getting a crown usually takes two appointments to complete. The dentist will numb the tooth and surrounding area during the first appointment with a local anesthetic. Then, they will file down the tooth to make room for the crown. Next, they will take an impression of the tooth to send to the lab where the crown will be made. In the meantime, a temporary crown will be placed over the tooth to protect it. Once the permanent crown is ready, the temporary one will be removed, and the permanent crown will be cemented. 

Dental crowns can enhance the appearance of your smile and restore the strength and function of your teeth. Whether you need to repair a chipped tooth, cover a discolored tooth, or protect a weakened tooth, dental crowns offer a versatile and long-lasting solution.
