Crowns in Mobile Alabama
Offering natural-looking Crowns that last
It’s often necessary to use a dental crown when a large cavity threatens the health of a tooth. A crown can cap not only decayed teeth but also teeth that are chipped or broken-down. A crown may also be used to change a tooth’s color, shape or length.
Our dentists believe that being a dentist means being a student for life. That’s why they have extended training in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, including crowns. They combine their advanced training and experience in cosmetic dentistry with an artistic eye to give you a crown that’s beautiful, fits comfortably and will last a very long time.
Our high-tech Crowns
At Maitre and Crabtree Dental Group, our lifelike crowns are fabricated from high-grade porcelain. Sometimes, depending upon the patient’s situation, our dentist will incorporate high-grade porcelain with solid zirconia to create a metal-free crown.
What Crowns are used for
For some people, crowns can be an excellent alternative to veneers for smile enhancement. That’s because crowns fix similar conditions as porcelain veneers. Crowns, however, have the added benefit of improving your bite. Crowns are typically used instead of veneers when the tooth is too broken down or decayed for a veneer – or when the bite needs to be adjusted.
We may recommend a crown for the following reasons:
- To improve your bite
- Smile makeovers
- Hold together a cracked tooth
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- To lengthen teeth that are too short
- Prevent a weak tooth from breaking
- Restore a broken tooth or a tooth that’s been severely worn down
- Cover severely discolored or misshapen teeth
- Cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t much tooth left
Replace your old crowns
At Maitre and Crabtree Dental Group, our dentists can repair older, low-quality crowns that are broken down with durable, lifelike crowns. They’ll conduct a full exam and evaluate what exactly should be removed and replaced to heighten oral health and beauty.
