Dental Crowns in San Diego
Dental crowns restore a tooth to its full glory – resulting in a truly aesthetically pleasing appearance. There are a few types of dental crowns.
Dental crowns are often chosen based on your needs and budget. Each type comes with it’s own set of advantages.
All ceramic or all porcelain crowns:
These types of crowns fully match the color of teeth for a concealed appearance and work very well with those who may have allergies to metal. This is the go-to crown solution for front teeth.
This option is very durable and matches the same shade as your teeth. However, they may appear as dark lines around your tooth so many people prefer to use them for back teeth that are not as visible.
All metal crowns:
This option is the most durable of them all at the cost of aesthetic appearance. They do not match the same color as teeth.
Can a Dental Crown Save Your Tooth?
Dental crowns are often used to finish off other procedures, such as dental implants. They also replace severe cases of tooth decay that have resulted in a large amount of tooth loss. Crowns restore form and function to your tooth without the need for an extraction. It is always best to save as much real tooth as possible.
