Dental Crowns


Do you have a broken or weak tooth that is disrupting your life? A dental crown is an effective and convenient way for you to quickly restore the function of your problem tooth and get back to enjoying your life.

At Care Dental Center, we know how important having beautiful and strong teeth is for your comfort and confidence. Our top-of-the-line dental crowns will beautifully maintain the strength of your smile, while also improving its appearance.

What Are Dental Crowns?

A dental crown is a durable covering, or "cap", that we place over the top portion of your tooth. Our office provides dental crowns that are customizable and are created from superior quality materials such as precious metals and porcelain, depending on your preference. Dental crowns help strengthen a fragile tooth and effectively safeguard your teeth from further damage and weakening.

What Types of Dental Crowns Are Available at Care Dental Center?

There are four different types of dental crowns:

Metal crowns can be made from gold and nickel. Compared to other types:

  • Maximum amount of tooth structure is preserved
  • Best for molars in the back of the mouth due to strength and metallic color

Porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns can be matched to the natural color of your teeth. Compared to other types:

  • Appearance of natural teeth, making them good for front or back teeth
  • Relatively strong due to metal combination but porcelain can break or chip

All-resin crowns can be made from composite material that is matched to the natural color of teeth. Compared to other types:

  • Least expensive
  • Prone to more wear and fractures

All-ceramic or all-porcelain crowns contain no metal. Compared to other types:

  • Best natural look and are a great choice for front teeth
  • Not as strong

  • Treating cavities too large for typical fillings
  • Supporting dental bridges
  • Covering misshapen or irreversibly stained teeth (cosmetic purposes)

What is the Process of Placing Dental Crowns?

You will first come to our modern practice for your first consultation, which will involve necessary x-rays and an exam from our expert Dr. Omid Barkhordar. We will also use our state-of-the-art equipment to take detailed mouth impressions to guarantee your crowns fit you precisely. During this appointment, we will also place a temporary dental crown that will protect your tooth while your permanent crown is being custom created.

Once your permanent crown is completed, we will bring you in for the permanent placement. We will bond and seal your new crown with our innovative cementing material, so you can be sure that your new smile in not only gorgeous, but also strong and dependable.

Do Dental Crowns Require Special Care?

The dental crown will not require any special care. Simply clean it as a normal part of your daily brushing and flossing routine.

Keep in mind that the tooth underneath your dental crown is not protected from decay so a good oral hygiene routine is essential. Paying special attention to the area of a dental crown, along the gum line, can only do your oral health good.
