Ceramic Crowns

If you are unhappy with the appearance of teeth that are decayed and damaged or that might have been restored with a metal crown, we can help. We specialize in cosmetic dentistry. Ceramic crowns can be used to repair damaged teeth, as well as restoring youth to your smile, making your teeth more beautiful than ever before. New modern technology makes it possible for patients who in the past, were told this was not an option.

What Ceramic Crowns Can Do for You

A dental crown is like a customized dental device that replaces the failing areas of the tooth with a high strength ceramic material designed to allow you to chew comfortably. The goal is to restore the strength of the tooth and protect it from future damage. In the past, you had to compromise between appearance and strength, but modern dental crowns made with ceramic materials can be both attractive and strong. That makes them useful for a wider range of cosmetic and restorative dental applications, including:

When a tooth is fractured

it needs protection against further cracking and damage. A ceramic crown can do that in most cases. For more severe issues, sometimes root canal therapy is performed, removing pulp from the tooth to reduce risk of infection. A deep fracture extending to the root may require extraction. In this case, dental implants are a great permanent solution. If you’re experiencing pain from a fractured tooth, call Little Mountain Dental today to schedule your free consultation at (435) 882-2331.

When the pulp of a tooth is removed as part of root canal therapy, the tooth has to be protected, and a porcelain crown is used for this.

Instant Orthodontics

Is an alternative to braces or Invisalign for teeth straightening. Instead of moving your teeth, we reshape them. This is typically done with porcelain veneers, but sometimes porcelain crowns are used when your reshaped teeth need extra strength and support.

Combining Beauty and Strength

At Little Mountain Dental we offer our patients the most modern advanced dental crowns available. In the past, metal crowns were used when strength was needed. Modern zirconia crowns are used as an aesthetic alternative to metal crowns. They are extremely strong and contain no metal.
