Dr. Myers likes to use porcelain crowns that look very natural and don’t have a dark metal line. When the size of a “filling” exceeds a certain proportion of the tooth, it must be replaced with a “cap,” also called a “crown.” Dr. Myers likes to use porcelain crowns that look very natural and don’t have a dark metal line. Porcelain crowns reflect light with a natural healthy glow.
Crowns, or caps for teeth, look and function just like natural teeth. Dr. Myers may recommend a crown if your tooth has enough decay that it cannot hold a filling, or if your tooth is cracked or broken and in danger of cracking down into the root if left unattended. A crown covers your tooth completely. It fits snugly at the gum and protects what remains of the natural tooth. Dr. Myers may recommend a bridge be utilized to replace one or more teeth. These restorations are cemented onto the teeth and are referred to as “fixed” dentistry as opposed to a restoration of missing teeth with a removable appliance or partial denture.
