Dental Crowns
Jacksonville, FL


Woman smiling after getting crowns at Atlantic Dentistry in Jacksonville, FLDental crowns act as effective remedies for weak and discolored teeth. Come to see us here at Atlantic Dentistry for quality dental crowns. Some people also prefer dental crowns for cosmetic purposes. Dental crowns can be made from different materials like metal and porcelain. They have to be fixed in such a way that they don’t stick out. Our dental professionals can help you cap your teeth with the most suitable dental crowns. When choosing a dental crown, these are some of the factors you have to consider: the location of the tooth, how much of the tooth is exposed when you smile, the function of the tooth in question, and the percentage of your natural teeth. Our dental professionals take you through the process and give you the guidance you require to make the best choice.

Step by Step Procedure for Putting a Dental Crown


The temporary crown is issued before your permanent crown gets ready. It is fixed with an adhesive to make for easy removal.

Dental Exam


Your tooth is examined to determine why it requires a dental crown. Digital radiography may be used to take fine images of your tooth. Also, the mold of your tooth and mouth may be taken.

Layer Removal


Before a crown is fitted, the tooth has to be even, which requires partial removal of the outer layer. This step involves filing down your tooth. Then an impression of your tooth is taken and sent to a laboratory for fabrication.

Temporary Crown


A temporary crown is fitted over your tooth, while the permanent crown gets made. On the next appointment, the permanent crown is fitted on your tooth.

Benefits of Dental Crowns


People get dental crowns to manage their dental problems or to exploit their cosmetic appeal. The following are some of the benefits of dental crowns.

Tooth Support


Some dental problems like tooth decay usually weaken the tooth. Dental crowns can provide support in weakened teeth.

Prevent Further Tooth Damage


Dental plaque and bacterial activity are always behind tooth damage. During the fitting of a dental crown, your tooth is cleaned up, removing all bacteria, thus preventing further tooth damage.

Holding a Cracked Tooth Together


Dental crowns are useful in holding together cracked teeth. They prevent the tooth from degenerating into a worse condition.

Types of Dental Crowns


Your choice of a dental crown depends on cost, material, and your needs. The following are some of the main types of dental crowns.

Gold Crowns


They are made from an alloy of copper, chromium, gold, and other metals. The gold crowns are both flexible and durable. They require removal of only a tiny amount of your natural tooth and are ideal for posterior restoration.

Porcelain Crowns


They are made from ceramic, and their greatest advantage is durability. Porcelain crowns appear to be the most popular dental crowns nowadays. They provide a very natural look and contain no metal, thus they are free of any toxic element.

Zirconia Crowns


Zirconia crowns have an unmatched aesthetic effect. They are easy to make and quite durable. Also, they are less likely to trigger allergies. The amount of time that a dental crown lasts depends on the material and also the wear and tear it is subjected to. Typically, it can last between 5 and 15 years.

The best tip is to always keep optimal dental hygiene. Dental crowns provide support for shifting teeth, and they are great for topping dental implants. Visit us at Atlantic Dentistry for the best dental crowns. You can contact us at 904 717-0335 today.
