What Are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are tooth-shaped “caps” placed over teeth to restore their shape, size, strength, and improve their appearance. Crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. Traditionally made from metals, modern crowns utilize advanced materials like ceramic and porcelain to provide improved aesthetics and function.
Canyon Dental Associates offers the latest in crown technology, providing crowns that not only protect and strengthen your teeth but also enhance your smile. With a focus on natural appearance and longevity, our crowns are designed to meet your specific dental needs.
Advancements in Crown Materials
Recent advancements have introduced materials like zirconium oxide and lithium disilicate, which are not only more cost-effective than traditional metals but also offer superior durability and a more natural look. Zirconium oxide is particularly noted for its strength, resistance to breaks, and ability to withstand the forces of chewing, making it an excellent choice for dental crowns.
At Canyon Dental Associates, we utilize these cutting-edge materials to create crowns that are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. Our crowns are tailored to match the color, translucency, and texture of your teeth, ensuring a seamless integration with your smile.
Zirconium Oxide Crowns
Zirconium oxide stands out in the field of dental materials due to its robustness, biocompatibility, and aesthetic qualities. It’s a material that can be slightly bent without breaking and does not require adhesive dental cement, simplifying the procedure. These crowns are corrosion-resistant, with a high density that contributes to their longevity and reliability.
Our team at Canyon Dental Associates chooses zirconium oxide for crowns to offer our patients the best in durability and appearance. With minimal preparation needed, these crowns can be a more comfortable and convenient option for our patients.
Lithium Disilicate Crowns
Lithium disilicate crowns provide an excellent balance of strength and aesthetics, with a natural hue that blends effortlessly with your existing teeth. This material is strong enough to handle daily chewing and is highly compatible with future dental procedures, such as veneering, without any hindrance.
Canyon Dental Associates recommends lithium disilicate crowns for their high cosmetic value and performance. The translucency of this material allows for light to pass through, mimicking the natural appearance of tooth enamel for an impressive and natural look.
