Metal-free crowns are natural looking and extremely durable. Ceramic comes very close to matching the hardness of a natural tooth. It offers many advantages over conventional crowns and has been routinely used by the doctors at Wood Creek Dental in Upstate South Carolina to restore our patients’ smiles.
Additionally, we are now able to offer esthetic ceramic crowns or partial crowns in a single visit with CEREC "same day crown" technology.
Natural Looking Dental Crowns and Bridges
No more black lines around crowns or that “looks like caps” esthetics! Lava™ (trademark of 3M company) and other zirconia-based developments have achieved heights in esthetic dentistry that were not possible a few short years ago.
Lava is an all-ceramic tooth restoration with a zirconium oxide understructure, which offers increased strength and fracture resistance. Lava crowns and bridges can withstand pressures far greater than those normally occurring within the bite structure. By restoring your teeth with these metal-free alternatives, we are not only keeping the natural beauty of your smile but also enhancing its strength and function.
“One of my worst possible nightmares came true when I fell head first down 22 steps…3 root canals and 4 crowns later, I was restored to almost the way God made me! I would recommend Wood Creek Dental for any issues you may have regarding your teeth. They will listen to your concerns with an open ear and a compassionate heart. And once you choose them, they will put their well-trained hands and minds to work in order to sculpt you the perfect smile!”— Tammy P.
Do You Need Dental Crowns or a Dental Bridge?
In general, we recommend dental crowns to correct issues, such as:
- Covering a misshapen or discolored tooth
- Covering a tooth after a root canal was performed
- Protecting a chipped, weakened, or fractured tooth
- Protecting a tooth that has had a large filling
- Attaching a bridge
If one or more teeth are missing, we may recommend a dental bridge where a false tooth or teeth are supported by a dental crown on either side. You may also be a candidate for dental implants.
