Ceramic Dental Crowns

How Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry Saves Cracked and Broken Teeth

One of the most common procedures here at Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry is placing a crown. Dr. Holsteen will place crowns to help out with many different dental health problems. Some of those include:

  • Covering a dental implant.
  • For a cosmetic modification.
  • Protecting a broken tooth or one that has been severely worn down.
  • Covering misshapen or severely discolored teeth.
  • Protecting a weak tooth from decay or to hold parts of a cracked tooth together.
  • Restoring an already broken tooth from further damage.
  • Holding in a dental bridge.

What Are Crowns Made From?

Crowns are made from different types of material. Early in dentistry crowns were made from metals and stainless steal. Here at Mountain Shadows Family Dentistry we use ceramic crowns. The reason that we recommend ceramic is because of their strength and also cosmetic appeal. Ceramic provides a better color match than other materials. They are also better for persons who have metal allergies.

How Long Do Dental Crowns Last?

Crowns last between 5-15 years depending on the amount of wear and tear and your oral health habits. After we place your dental crown you’ll want to stay away from chewing ice and other hard materials, grinding your teeth, biting your finger nails and opening packages with your teeth. This will help your crown last for as long as possible.

To schedule a consultation regarding a dental crown, give us a call at 719-598-3502 or email us.

We look forward to hearing from you.

I've been seeing Dr. Holsteen since 1992! The staff is wonderful! They are friendly and they talk to you! They are not robots! (Not to mention they play my favorite oldies station on Pandora when I go in!) I love these professionals because they make you feel at home!
