Dental Crowns in Jackson, MI

DENTAL CROWNS IN JACKSON, MI

Do your teeth appear to be too small for your face? Are there chips, stains, or cracks in your teeth? If so, our dentists at Iocca Family Dentistry can improve their appearance with dental crowns. Many actors, singers, and models get their teeth capped to change their appearance, and we can do the same for you.

Are Dental Caps and Crowns the Same?

Teeth caps and crowns in Jackson, MI are the same dental prosthetic that covers your natural teeth. These dental caps become the new surfaces of your teeth because one of our dentists cements them on your teeth. To ensure that they fit, one of our dentists will trim your tooth along the bottom and sides.

Crown Materials

A crown is a great way to improve a tooth’s appearance because they are difficult to distinguish from natural teeth. To help them blend in, our dentists near you can order them in a shade that matches your teeth. Unless you tell people, they won’t know that you have teeth caps.

Our dentists can recommend crown materials based on where they are going in your mouth and whether you want them to show. You can select from materials like:

  • Porcelain or a ceramic mixture
  • Gold
  • Silver
  • Zirconia
  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal

Although they can go on any of your teeth, porcelain or ceramic caps usually go in the front because they are more fragile than metal or porcelain-fused-to-metal caps. Metal or porcelain-fused-to-metal caps often go onto the back teeth because they do most chewing, and they can withstand the chewing forces better.

Pressed ceramic caps, which are porcelain on the outside and ceramic pressed on the inside, are also durable, so our dentists in Jackson, MI may place them on the back teeth. However, if your dental caps are only for appearances, then metal caps are more likely to be placed on your back teeth because they are not easy to see.

If you want better-looking teeth, then one of our dentists may recommend dental crowns near you. Call for an appointment to have your teeth evaluated at Iocca Family Dentistry.
