Dental Crowns in Jaffrey, NH

At Monadnock Dental Associates, we offer dental crowns to patients in Jaffrey, NH. Crowns can be used to fortify and improve the appearance of cracked or broken teeth.

What are dental crowns?

A dental crown is a cap put over a tooth to protect it from wear and tear. Crowns can also be used to improve the look of teeth. We offer high-quality crowns made of durable ceramic and porcelain. The kind of material used will depend on the location of the tooth and the biting surface.

Crowns are usually placed over damaged or discolored teeth to improve their appearance. In some cases, crowns are also used to support bridges.

The Dental Crown Procedure

After numbing the relevant area, our dentist will file down the existing tooth to make room for the crown. Then, an imprint or mold will be taken off the tooth so that the crown can be custom-made.

Usually, a temporary crown will be placed while you wait for the permanent one to be ready. Once it arrives, our dentist will check to ensure it fits appropriately before permanently attaching it to your tooth. With proper dental care, your crowns can last you for many years.

Types of Dental Crowns

Our dentist can make crowns from different materials, such as porcelain, metal, porcelain fused to metal, or ceramic. Each type of dental crown material has its pros and cons.

Porcelain

Porcelain crowns are made from porcelain material. Porcelain crowns are highly durable and have a natural-looking appearance. They are also less likely to wear down over time than other crown materials. Porcelain crowns are usually used on visible front teeth or molars.

Ceramic

Ceramic crowns are made from a material that looks and feels like natural tooth enamel. The color of a ceramic crown can be matched to your natural teeth. Ceramic crowns are less likely than metal crowns to cause allergic reactions. They are also more resistant to staining and discoloration. However, ceramic crowns are more costly than metal crowns.
