Dental Crowns – How It Works

Dental-Crowns-1At Hazzouri Dental we provide modern tooth-colored dental crowns for teeth that are severely damaged by decay or injury. These crowns look like natural teeth, preserve the tooth base and root, and, along with it, the structural integrity of your dental arch.

To restore your tooth and maintain your smile, we first remove the damaged tooth material and enough additional material to create an even foundation for comfortably attaching a tooth-shaped cover. The dental crowns we use are made of the finest modern ceramics, unlike old-fashioned metal crowns. They not only look better, but they are stronger and more durable than natural teeth.

Completely removing a tooth should be the last resort. When the whole tooth is removed, adjacent teeth move to fill in the gap that is created, thereby weakening the jaw. There are procedures to replace a lost tooth, but the best practice is to keep as much of the original one as possible and construct a restoration over it.

Natural tooth-colored dental crowns are the sensible answer to severely damaged teeth. They look and feel like the real thing and help you to avoid more complicated and costly procedures.

Dental-Crowns-3At Hazzouri Dental, we feature Lava™ Zirconia crowns. These crowns are included among the most clinically proven all-ceramic restorations available. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, but they also offer excellent long-term stability with no allergenic potential. These beautiful, metal-free crowns are perfectly matched to your teeth and offer years of worry-free comfort.
