Durable, Well-Fitted & Natural Looking Crowns
High-quality dental crowns, also known as caps, are one of the key tools Dr. Bursich uses to help preserve decayed teeth and improve smiles.
As part of the complete services offered to his patients by Dr. Bursich, he will provide you with a crown that is well-fitted and long-lasting. He always takes special care to make sure that he fully explains the procedure to you, and he works hard to keep you from feeling pain during the procedure. If you need a crown, he will make sure that you receive the right type of crown, and that it fits with your natural bite.
"The work I received from Dr. Bursich was a deep gum cleaning, as well as crowns and fillings. Yes, a lot of work and I would have to say that I have never been happier with my smile than I am right now. I would recommend anyone to try him as their dentist and they will see firsthand what I mean."
Traditional porcelain crowns are made with porcelain covering a metal shell. The metal provides strength and support for the porcelain which gives it a natural appearance. All-porcelain, also called "all-ceramic" crowns, use a ceramic shell instead of a metal shell to support the porcelain. With all-porcelain crowns, no metal band is visible around the base of the tooth.
With advances in technology, these all-porcelain crowns can be used in a variety of situations. Dr.Bursich will complete a thorough examination and listen to your wishes to determine which type of crown is best suited for you.
When would I need a crown?
A crown, or cap, is a custom-made dental restoration which protects the underlying tooth. You may need a crown because of:
- Extensive tooth decay
- Large metal or tooth-colored fillings, that weaken the remaining tooth
- Broken or cracked teeth
- A tooth that has had root canal therapy
- A misaligned or misshaped tooth
- Teeth that have large fillings that are breaking down and cannot be refilled
