What Are Dental Crowns Made From?

Crowns are made from different types of material. Early in dentistry, they were made from metals like stainless steel. Here at Premier Family Dentistry, we use porcelain crowns. The reason that we recommend porcelain is because of its strength and cosmetic appeal. Porcelain provides a better color match than other materials. It is also better for those who have metal allergies.

How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?

Crowns last between five to fifteen years, depending on your oral health habits and the amount of wear and tear they receive. After we place your dental crown, you’ll want to stay away from chewing ice and other hard materials, grinding your teeth, biting your fingernails, and opening packages with your teeth. This will help your crown last as long as possible.

How Premier Family Dentistry Saves Cracked And Broken Teeth

One of the most common procedures here at Premier Family Dentistry is placing a crown. Dr. Tucker will place crowns to help out with many different dental health problems. Some of those include:

  • To cover a dental implant
  • For a cosmetic modification
  • To protect a broken tooth or one that has been severely worn down
  • To cover misshapen or severely discolored teeth
  • To protect a weak tooth from decay or to hold parts of a cracked tooth together
  • To restore an already broken tooth from further damage
  • To hold in a dental bridge

To schedule a consultation regarding a dental crown, give us a call at 847-680-0975 or email us.

We look forward to hearing from you!
