Dental Crowns

Dr. Perkiomaki uses dental crowns to cap teeth that have been damaged and their integrity has been compromised. When teeth are fractured, are severely decayed, or have had a root canal therapy performed, they have become weakened, meaning fracture could continue easier. A weakened tooth will continue to deteriorate with your normal daily use. Crowns provide that protection and strength your tooth needs.

What is a dental crown?

Crowns entirely encase your tooth structure allowing you to chew and speak normally while protecting the tooth. Made to replicate the original tooth that it's covering, we send a mold of your tooth and bite to a dental lab to make a perfect fit. This is precise work and it needs to be to ensure that the bite and jaw alignment are the same.

We also take into consideration that the crown blends with your natural teeth, so color is important. You would be surprised how many shades of white your crown can come in! Some of our patients choose to have us whiten their surrounding teeth before having a crown placed, because you wouldn't want to do the opposite, the crown will not whiten.

Dental crowns are used to:

•  repair a decayed tooth that has lost its integrity.
•  repair tooth that has broken or cracked.
•  hide a tooth that has darkened due to trauma.
•  following root canal therapy.
•  to provide an anchor for a dental bridge.
•  to top a dental implant.

Will my crown be visible?

The work with Dental Crowns has advanced greatly over the years. We are now able to provide several materials for Dental Crowns, including materials that blend in so naturally with your mouth that you will not be able to spot it from the rest of your teeth and are still very strong. Traditionally gold or metal crowns and been the best materials, but the porcelain and ceramic materials that we offer today are highly durable and look great. Ask our staff at Jukka J. Perkiomaki, DMD about these options, we will help you decide what is best for your situation. We are able to give you a crown that is strong and natural looking.
