Dental crowns are also commonly known as caps and are placed directly over the tooth to prevent further damage of teeth that are already heavily-damaged or decayed. These are best for people who are having problems but don’t want to remove the tooth that they already have there. If you think you may be eligible for a dental crown, contact Burch Dental in Loves Park or Rockford for more information and help!
There are many different kinds of dental crowns available. Some examples include stainless steel (mostly done on children), resin, ceramic, and porcelain. Each one of these options are good for different reasons and purposes, so it is vital you discuss this with your dentist. Here at Burch Dental we use the best quality material, let’s highlight some of the different options below.
A stainless-steel crown is mostly used as a temporary treatment for children due to less dental appointments and faster procedure. Remove (for a painful or decayed tooth). It goes right over (your) the child’s damaged (permanent) tooth and creates a layer between your tooth and the external cap. Remove: (Children are the most common ones to be offered a stainless-steel cover because as you age your teeth do as well.) A child who receives this is likely to get this tooth removed over time or the tooth will naturally fall out, taking the cap with it. Remove: (Children also more commonly get this because it is faster to insert than other forms.)
Permanent crowns are made in a dental laboratory to ensure the proper strength and integrity of the crown (cap). Our crowns are made with the strongest, most up to date material, looking and feeling like a natural tooth.
