Esthetic or White Crowns
"Esthetic" or "white" crowns refer to dental crowns that closely match the natural color and appearance of a person's teeth. These crowns are made from materials like porcelain or ceramic, which are selected for their ability to mimic the translucency and color of natural teeth. The choice between esthetic or white crowns and other types of crowns depends on several factors, including the patient's cosmetic preferences, the location of the tooth, the extent of damage, and the dentist's recommendation based on the specific dental needs of the individual. Consult our board-certified pediatric dentist for the best advice.
Natural Appearance: Esthetic or white crowns closely resemble the color, size, and shape of a person's natural teeth, providing a natural and attractive smile.
Materials: They are typically made from high-quality dental porcelain or ceramic, chosen for their ability to replicate the appearance of enamel.
Versatility: Esthetic crowns are versatile and can be used for various dental restorations, including fixing broken teeth, covering discolored teeth, and restoring teeth after root canal treatment.
Durability: While not as strong as some metal crowns, modern porcelain or ceramic materials used in esthetic crowns are durable and can withstand normal chewing forces.
Longevity: With proper care and maintenance, esthetic crowns can last for many years, providing a long-term and aesthetically pleasing dental solution.
Cost: Esthetic crowns are generally more expensive than traditional metal crowns due to the advanced materials and techniques used in their fabrication.
