What a Dental Crown Can Do for Your Smile

Crowns are state-of-the-art dentistry. They are crucial for the structural and aesthetic health of your teeth because they reinforce weak teeth and hide dental imperfections. Dr. Stephen Solomon and Dr. Jonathan Solomon of Putnam, CT, offers patients with crowns to help them with their dental ordeal.

More About Crowns

Dental crowns are cap-like oral appliances that offer a perfect solution that fits over damaged, decayed or unattractive tooth. Dentists cement crowns into place, above the gum line, to help teeth function normally and look more appealing.

Types of Crowns

Ceramic Dental Crowns: Porcelain-based dental crowns often restore front teeth because of their natural color and texture. They blend in effortlessly with your remaining natural teeth.

Porcelain-Fused to Metal Dental Crowns: Porcelain-fused to metal crowns provide patients with natural-looking teeth while the metal structure adds durability.

Base Metal Alloys Dental Crowns: Base metal alloys are resistant to corrosion and contain non-noble metals that don't damage neighboring teeth.
