Dental crowns from The Fort Collins Dentist are a versatile restoration. A crown adds strength to a tooth that has a large filling or been damaged. It is usually necessary after a root canal. In a dental implant procedure, a crown is the final step.
Dental crowns are made from a variety of materials that vary in appearance and strength:
- All ceramic (porcelain-based)
- Porcelain fused to metal
- Gold alloys
- Base metal alloys
Dental crowns can last for many years, but they are not designed to last indefinitely. A crown can last for about fifteen years. But when they are well taken care of, crowns have been known to last much longer: as long as twenty-five or thirty years!
At The Fort Collins Dentist, we place a lot of dental crowns. Patients from North Laramie, Cheyenne, Greeley, and South Berthoud come to our practice for this and other restorative dentistry options. Contact us today!
