Insights on the Materials That Might Be Used to Craft Your Crown

Posted .

A dental crown in Madison, New Jersey, can be used to play any number of roles in restoring a badly decayed or damaged tooth. At the same time, a crown can also be used to restore a tooth that has become unappealing.

The material your dentist, Dr. Dennis Coyle, recommends will depend on several factors, including the tooth’s location, its primary function and its prevalence in your smile.

Gold alloy and base metal crowns are known for being very durable. This makes them a good choice for molars and some premolars because they are often needed to chew and grind tough foods.

In a cosmetic dentistry treatment, Dr. Dennis Coyle will usually recommend a porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal crown to restore a tooth in your smile. The porcelain material can be shaded to match the surrounding teeth, making it appear as if it was one of your natural teeth.

If you have a tooth in need of repair or cosmetic enhancement, you should call Coyle Dentistry at 973-966-6555 to see if you’re a good candidate for a crown.
