At our office, Dr. Tim J. Brooks often uses dental crowns to restore a tooth that is suffering from a large cavity, a missing filling, a fracture or imperfections. Crowns can be crafted from different materials. The specific material that Dr. Tim J. Brooks recommends for your crown will be largely based on the tooth’s location in your mouth and its primary function.

A porcelain crown is often recommended to restore a tooth that is prevalent in your smile. If you have a premolar or incisor that is visible at the edge of your smile, Dr. Tim J. Brooks might recommend using a porcelain crown fused to a strong metal core. The metal core can then provide the added strength to bite off tougher foods.

The porcelain material can be shaded to perfectly match the surrounding natural teeth. It also will resist future stains, making it easy to maintain the tooth’s cosmetic appeal.

The molars and premolars in the back of your mouth are called upon to do a lot of chewing and grinding of foods. This calls for durable materials that can handle the workload without fear of chips. This makes durable gold alloy and base metal alloy crowns a good choice for these teeth.
