5-Star-Rated Dentist Explains Reno, NV, Dental Crowns

Although your teeth are the strongest part of your body, they require proper care and regular cleaning to keep them healthy for a lifetime. Sometimes, even with the best care, your teeth can encounter issues like cracking and require restoration. When this happens, dental professionals typically turn to dental crowns to protect your teeth. Keep reading to learn more about Reno, NV, dental crowns from Atencio Dentistry.

What Is a Crown?

A dental crown is a dental restoration that’s used to protect a damaged tooth. Commonly known as a cap, a crown can also be used to improve the appearance, shape, or alignment of a tooth. Cemented onto an existing tooth, a dental crown is a fixed prosthetic device and can only be removed by a professional.

When Is a Crown Necessary?

A dental crown is often used to protect a cracked tooth or restore the functionality of a decaying tooth, but our dentist may also recommend a crown for any of the following reasons:

  • To reinforce a weakened tooth and prevent fracturing
  • To attach a bridge
  • To cover a dental implant
  • To replace a large filling in a decaying tooth
  • To cover a discolored or misshaped tooth
  • To cover a tooth after root canal treatment

Which Type of Crown Do You Need?

Several types of dental crowns are used in the field of dentistry including:

  • Ceramic – made from a translucent material that blends well with your natural tooth color
  • Porcelain – made with or without metal and resembles your natural tooth color
  • Resin – made of inexpensive composite material and not widely used in modern-day dentistry
  • Metals – gold alloys used are a mix of gold, copper and other metals. Base metal alloys are non-noble metals that are highly resistant to corrosion

There are pros and cons to using each type of dental crown, so be sure to discuss your options with a dental professional. Your specific case, as well as any allergies you may have, will determine which type of crown is used to treat and protect your damaged tooth.

I was nervous to see a new doctor especially since I didn’t have the best experience at my last place but was surprised Everyone was very friendly and efficient. I felt comfortable and well taken care of. They took the time to explain what they were going to do and not get you in and rush you out. Very nice.
