Need a dental crown? Find the best cosmetic dentist in Fort Lauderdale and Lauderdale by the Sea

Dental crowns are a common treatment to restore teeth that are broken or have decay too large to be restored by just a filling or to protect teeth that have had root canal therapy.  Dental crowns are also placed on top of implants to replace a missing tooth.  These crowns serve to protect the tooth from damage and pain by covering the entire tooth.  While crowns are a common dental procedure performed by your family dentist, selecting the best cosmetic dentist in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, will ensure you achieve a long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing restoration.

Many advancements have been made in dental crowns in the last 50 years. Porcelain fused to metal (PFM) crowns have been around since the 1960s. The interior of the PFM crown is metal which gives the restoration durability and the exterior covering is opaque porcelain to provide aethetics and the appearance of a natual-looking tooth. Unfortunately, due to the underlying metal in a PFM crown, they are prone to a dark line that is sometimes seen near the gumline.  Sometimes the overlying porcelain can chip or break, requiring repair.

Historically PFM crowns were superior to all porecelain crowns due to their durability, but with advancements in technology and materials, all poreclain crowns are stronger than ever.  Because poreclain crowns do not have any metal under the porcelain, they can provide a more natural appearing restoration.  Each crown is custom-made specifically to perfectly cover the tooth and to perfectly  match with the color of neighboring teeth, meaning others are unlikely to notice that you have had any work done at all.  Additionally, because all porcelain crowns are metal free, there is no need to worry about metal allergies.

Dental bridges are made of three or more crowns together and are used to "bridge" the gap left by one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges restore proper occlusion, or bite, and allow patients to chew more naturally.  They also prevent teeth from shifting or drifting into the space left by the missing tooth. A bridge can not only restore the function of your bite, when done by a skillful cosmetic dentist, it can give you a beautiful new smile!
