Dental Crowns in Coral Springs, FL
A dental crown is a ceramic or porcelain prosthetic tooth that is used in restoration treatments. Dental crowns are placed on top of implant posts or an existing natural tooth for protection, and they blend in with your adjacent natural teeth. A crown can be a part of full or partial restoration based on the extent of the damage.
For example, if your tooth is only partly decayed, our dentist will remove the damaged dental matter, treat the issue, and place a dental crown on the tooth. If the entire tooth and root are decayed or lost, our Coral Springs dentist will place an implant and then mount the dental crown on top of it.

Types of Crown
Dental crowns are made from different kinds of materials. They can be all-metal and made from either silver or gold; however, at Optimum Dentistry of Coral Springs, we base most cases with an aesthetic end.
Porcelain-Infused metal is an excellent alternative for people who want the resilience of metal but the natural appearance of porcelain. This crown is durable, but the porcelain layer can wear off over time and expose the metal underneath.
Ceramic or Porcelain crowns are very popular because of their natural, tooth-like appearance. They can last between five and ten years with proper care but are fragile compared to the options mentioned above.
