Placing Dental Crowns
Charlotte, NC

Image of a dental crown being placed at Myers Park Dental Partners in Charlotte, NC. Our teeth get damaged for multiple reasons, including use over time, injuries, tooth decay, and other reasons. As a result, your teeth can lose their size and shape, but fortunately, dental crowns can help resolve this issue. Dental crowns are caps that can be placed on your damaged teeth to restore their appearance, strength, size, and shape. At Myers Park Dental Partners, our dentists Dr. Allen and Dr. Crystal are experienced and skilled to customize dental crowns to match the surrounding teeth.

Understanding the Types of Dental Crowns

There are a variety of dental crowns available with their own set of advantages and disadvantages. Here are some of the popular types of dental crowns.

Ceramic Crowns or Porcelain Crowns

Ceramic or porcelain crowns are the most common type of dental crowns used in many cases. These are durable, easy to fit and give the most natural appearance. These are also ideal for those with metal allergies or looking for biocompatible crowns.

All-Resin Crowns

All-resin dental crowns are the most affordable crowns available, but they do get damaged faster. They have a higher chance of breaking compared to other crowns.

Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal Crowns

These are also popular dental crowns as they are close to the natural color of the teeth and have higher durability. These are more affordable than ceramic crowns but can create a dark line around the gum line since the metal under the cap sometimes shows.

Stainless Steel Crowns

These dental crowns are usually used to restore the primary teeth among children with baby root canals or pulp therapy. These are created to get lost with the baby tooth and are not long-lasting.

Benefits of Ceramic Crowns

Ceramic crowns are one of the most preferred choices for many dental patients since they are affordable and can provide the most natural-looking teeth. Here are some of the advantages of ceramic crowns.
•  Create the most natural look that seamlessly blends with other teeth
•  Higher durability and strength than other crowns
•  Doesn’t cause any allergic reactions
•  There is no risk of metal absorption
•  Little to no infection risk
•  They are free from mercury elements

Are Same-Day Crowns Effective?

If you want a fast dental solution, you can consider same-day crowns. These are great when you need to wait for the permanent one to return from the lab or require a temporary crown. Same-day crowns require only one dentist visit and offer more convenience and comfort. Dental crowns are an ideal solution for missing, broken, and chipped teeth. With good oral hygiene, ceramic crowns can easily last for over a decade. The lifespan of dental crowns mostly depends on normal wear and tear and your oral hygiene habits.

The cost of a crown depends on several factors, including the type of crown you select and the material of the crown. The experienced dentists at Myers Park Dental Partners can help you determine which one is the right choice for you after a thorough dental examination. We also offer same-day crown service.
