A Closer Look at Dental Crowns
Crowns Address Many Common Dental Issues
Badly Decayed or Damaged Teeth
If a large cavity, crack, or injury has significantly damaged your tooth, a crown can strengthen its structure.
Root Canal Infection
When you undergo treatment for a root canal infection, your dentist will typically cap the tooth with a crown for reinforcement.
Some large cosmetic flaws like cracks, worn enamel, and intrinsic discoloration, require the extensive coverage of a crown.
Missing or Extracted Teeth
If you have missing teeth due to severe decay or gum disease, a crown supported by a dental implant will replace the entire tooth structure.
Don't Delay Dental Treatment
If you are experiencing dental pain, swelling, or other symptoms of a problem, it is important to contact a dentist immediately. The sooner we see you, the more likely we can place a dental crown and save your natural tooth. Waiting can cause an infection to spread or the tooth to fall out on its own. Fortunately, our Boston practice provides emergency dental care to get you the help you need without delay.

What About Implant-Supported Crowns?
It is important to understand that implant dentistry is much more complex than traditional dental crown treatment. When you replace a missing tooth with a dental implant, you will first undergo a surgical procedure at our Boston practice. Over the course of several months, the implant fuses with the jawbone and becomes a permanent part of your oral anatomy. Once you recover, we will attach a premium porcelain dental crown to your implant to complete your treatment.
The advantage of an implant-supported crown is that it replaces the entire missing tooth, including the root. Doing this promotes stimulation of the jaw, signaling it to grow bone and avoid the bone loss caused by a missing tooth.
Are There Any Benefits to Lab-Made Crowns?
Considering All Your Options
At the dental practice of Dr. James M. Stein, we believe that an informed patient is a happy patient. So we take every measure to ensure that our patients are well-educated about their treatment options. While CEREC crowns are undoubtedly the most convenient, there are also advantages to choosing a traditional lab-made crown.
If you are interested in a material other than ceramic, the lab can craft your crown from a wide range of alternatives including pure porcelain and porcelain fused to metal. Since they are made by hand, the aesthetics tend to be slightly more realistic, and a good option for highly visible front teeth.
Of course, what is best for one patient is not necessarily the same for the next. Our job is to answer your questions and help you select the best treatment plan for your needs.
