After Dental Crowns

When the size of a filling exceeds a certain proportion of the tooth, it must be replaced with a crown, also called a cap. Dr. Kneib may also recommend a crown if your tooth is cracked.

A crown covers your tooth completely, fitting snugly at the gum line and protecting what remains of the natural tooth. These may be of an all-ceramic material, all-metal, or a combination of the two. There are many advantages to porcelain or ceramic crowns:

  • Reflects light with a natural, healthy glow
  • No dark metal lines
  • Appearance blends well with other teeth
  • Great for front teeth

Dr. Kneib may also recommend a bridge or implant be utilized to replace one or more missing teeth.

A high-quality porcelain crown that we fully recommend is Ivoclar Vivident's e.Max crown. The benefits of the product include high strength, high durability, and aesthetic appeal all in one.
