Your teeth are more susceptible to damage than you may realize. While maintaining good oral hygiene practices will help prevent decay, it will not prevent the chips, cracks, or fractures that can occur from hard foods or a blow to the mouth. Also, those large silver amalgam fillings that were placed in your teeth years ago may have weakened your natural tooth structure, putting your teeth at risk for more serious dental issues down the road.
Dental crowns are an effective restoration to repair damaged teeth. Since your crown is essentially an encasing for your whole tooth, it offers you both a functional and aesthetic remedy to your oral health problem. Please call 215-493-3388 to find out if a crown is right for you.
Yardley cosmetic dentist Dr. Jennifer Kalochie has successfully used dental crowns to:
- Protect a weak tooth from breaking or cracking
- Reinforce a tooth that has had root canal
- Restore a broken or severely worn down tooth
- Cover a tooth with a large dental filling to preserve the remaining natural tooth structure
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Cover misshapen or discolored teeth
- Provide a prosthetic tooth for a dental implant
Dental Crown Options
Dr. Kalochie uses the finest materials with all of her dental crowns to ensure you receive a beautiful, natural looking restoration. Whenever possible, she will recommend all-porcelain dental crowns since they produce the most aesthetic outcome. However, tooth-colored zirconium crowns are often the best option for back teeth since they are stronger, but still achieve beautiful results.
Unlike many other many dental practices, Dr. Kalochie only works with high quality U.S.-based dental laboratories that employ dental technicians and ceramists who have trained at the same institutions that she has to ensure the restorations they are creating meet her criteria for aesthetics, comfort, function, and durability. Almost all restorations are created at Inter-Chrome Dental Lab, Virginia Beach, VA.
