Crowns are synthetic dental caps, usually made of a tooth-colored material such as porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth’s function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal.
One of the most exciting areas of dentistry is dental materials. Our grandparents had the choice of keeping their aching teeth or getting a denture. Our parents were given the choice between ugly mercury (silver) amalgam fillings or gold crowns. The next big advancement was porcelain fused to metal. At least, the teeth were whitish but they still didn’t look “real.” Now, thanks to modern dentistry, we have the ability to realistically mimic natural teeth.
Our dentists, Dr. Cashion and Dr. Cody, use strong materials that allow translucency through the tooth. This is why it looks so real. Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns always look more flat. Light cannot shine through it like a natural tooth or these new crowns.
Here at CandC Dental, we are fortunate to have the ability to give natural-looking smiles. It is truly a pleasure to have the opportunity to provide these services.
