Dental Crowns

Having a functional smile is important, but at Feliciana Dental, we also believe aesthetics matter. We want our patients to be happy when they look in the mirror. A tooth can be damaged for any one of millions of reasons; in some cases, dental crowns offer the perfect solution to damaged teeth. Feliciana Dental has your back when your smile needs some fixing. 

The easiest way to think of tooth crowns is as a cover for your tooth. It protects the tooth and offers structure that was lost. Crowns are expertly shaped to fit perfectly over your teeth and match their natural look. A mold or a 3D image is taken of your teeth to create your personalized crown.

types of crown

All-resin crowns

Composite resin is used to make all-resin crowns. They are usually used for temporary crowns because they lack in the durability department.

Ceramic crowns

Ceramic crowns match the color of your natural teeth and look visually pleasing. They are entirely metal-free, making them ideal for those with metal allergies.

Metal crowns

These crowns are the most durable and can be made with a combination of metals like gold and aluminum. They are usually used for back molars because they are pretty noticeable.

Porcelain-metal fused crowns

Porcelain fused with metal crowns offers some of the durability aspects of metal dental crowns. But they also feature ideal aesthetic qualities that are found in ceramic crowns.
