ABOUT DENTAL CROWNS
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers a tooth that is decayed, cracked or otherwise damaged. Tooth caps are generally used by the dentist when a filling is insufficient.
Dr. Paulen also uses metal free dental crowns in cosmetic dentistry treatments to improve the appearance of teeth that are misshapen, misaligned or discolored and eliminate dark lines and allergic reactions.
PORCELAIN VS. GOLD DENTAL CROWN
Atlanta dentist Dr. Paulen offers several choices in material for dental crowns. She will generally use a tooth-colored restoration such as porcelain for teeth in the smile zone. Teeth in the back of the mouth may be better restored using a Zirconium tooth colored material for strength and durability.
Both choices are highly durable and aesthetic. Dr. Paulen will help you choose which is right based on your needs, goals and budget.
