There are many different types of dental crowns in Edgartown, MA. At Edgartown Dental Group, many of our patients ask for all-porcelain dental crowns, Procera® AllCeram crowns, and Zirconia crowns. If you’re looking for these dental crowns near you, we can help. We provide dozens of patients with dental crowns every month.
At Edgartown Dental Group in Edgartown, MA, we use crowns to treat large cavities, damaged teeth, and to cover teeth for cosmetic reasons. You can trust our dentist near you to get the job done and to do it correctly.
Zirconia crowns are made of zirconium dioxide. It’s considered one of the most durable types of crowns and is classified as ceramic despite being made of metal. Getting a Zirconia dental crown by our dentist in Edgartown, MA, means only having to go for one visit. This is an advantage for many of our patients who don’t want to take extra days off from work to see the dentist.
Procera crowns are ceramic crowns that contain no metal. It’s considered stronger and more durable than all other porcelain crowns. Unlike Zirconia crowns, patients need to come in for two visits when getting a Procera crown. During the first visit, we’ll measure the dimensions of the affected tooth and make sure it doesn’t need root canal treatment.
The dimensions are sent to a lab where the crown is manufactured. You’ll need to come back in once we receive the crown from the lab so we can apply it.
A big part of our job is to provide our patients with dental solutions that work. It’s also important for these dental solutions to look great. Our smiles are integral to how we look and live our lives. Ceramic and porcelain crowns are white, and their shape and shade can be matched to the rest of your teeth.
People who see you with a ceramic or porcelain crown won’t tell the difference between it and your natural teeth.
