Dental Crowns- Bay Star Dental
What are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns and bridges are artificial structures that go over your existing teeth or dental implants to protect your teeth, fix cosmetic dental issues, or replace missing teeth.
Dental crowns and bridges are made from different materials, such as ceramics, resins, and metal alloys.
Ceramic or resin crowns and bridges can be made to match the color and style of your existing teeth exactly. You won’t even be able to tell the difference!
Bay Star Dental also offers same day dental crowns! Read more about that process here.
When Should You Get Dental Crowns?
If you have discolored, cracked, broken, or filled teeth, San Mateo dental crowns add stability to your teeth and prevent more damage. A dental crown can also be used to support dental bridges and fill in gaps in your smile.
Also, if your teeth are worn down, have large fillings, or are fractured teeth, we recommend dental crowns to protect your teeth and prevent further deterioration.
Bay Star Dental is your first choice in San Mateo dental crowns!
Dental crowns do the following:
Cover majorly discolored teeth
- Fix cracked or broken teeth
- Prevent weak teeth from cracking
- Cap teeth that underwent root canals
- Go over dental implants
- Replace big fillings
- Secure dental bridges
What’s the Difference Between Dental Crowns and Veneers?
A dental crown covers all parts of a tooth above your gum line, restoring all of its strength and functionality, whereas a veneer only covers the front of a tooth for purely cosmetic purposes. To learn more about our San Mateo Veneers, see this page.
