Dental CrownsAn Overview
Crowns are the aesthetic dental solution for teeth that have suffered too much damage to be repaired with fillings, inlays, or onlays. Occasionally a tooth cracks or breaks because of tooth decay, teeth grinding, an accident, or other reasons. When this occurs, Dr. Weinstock can repair the damaged tooth with a natural-looking porcelain crown that will be virtually indistinguishable from surrounding teeth.

Dental Crowns What to Expect
With traditional crowns, a porcelain “tooth” covers a metal cap, which is affixed to the prepared tooth remnant. While this method is excellent for restoring strength and structure to damaged teeth, the edge of the metal cap can show at the gum line. For this reason, Dr. Weinstock typically uses traditional porcelain-on-metal crowns only to repair back teeth. This way, patients can benefit from the added strength of the porcelain fused to metal without having to worry.
When front teeth become damaged, all-ceramic crowns provide the ultimate in aesthetically pleasing tooth restoration. All-ceramic crowns not only accurately recreate the shape of the tooth, they have a superbly translucent appearance that makes them virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. Dr. Weinstock will customize your all-ceramic crown to complement the color, size, shape, and texture of your surrounding teeth. Indeed, his precision and attention to detail ensure such natural-looking results that you may forget which of your teeth was repaired.
