Dental Crowns, also called “caps”, are an excellent way to restore optimum form and function to a damaged or decayed tooth.  A dental crown is a custom made protective covering that is permanently cemented over the tooth. In America, millions of crown procedures are performed every year because this is such a highly effective and predictable treatment option.  Many times, crowns are needed on teeth that have large, deteriorated, mercury amalgam filling that have been present in the tooth for some time.    Over time these large mercury fillings can become the victim of decay or even cause part of the natural tooth to break off.  There are other reasons that a tooth could need a crown as well.  Our caring and highly skilled doctors will remove any tooth decay or old, deteriorated fillings before taking an impression for your new crown.  Like any other product, not all crowns are high quality.  Some dentists use cheap materials and labs to lower their expenses and increase profits.  What’s worse is that some even have the crowns made in foreign dental labs where there is no way to know if these foreign labs are up to standard.  At Dental Health Experts, we use only the finest labs in the United States to make all of the crowns for our patients.  Additionally, to ensure that your new crown will serve you for many years to come, we use only the highest quality and strongest materials.  These high quality materials are used by our doctors to make very durable dental crowns so that the tooth is protected from future damage.  Crowns can be made from a number of different materials, such as porcelain, metal or a combination of porcelain and metal depending on the particular situation of the tooth needing the crown.  Our knowledgable dentists are more than happy to spend as much time as needed to explain all of the details surrounding this excellent treatment option.  When performed by a skilled dentist, and with proper care, dental crowns can last many years.  Call us now for a free consultation if you feel that dental crowns could improve your oral health and function.
