Dental CrownsAn Overview
Dental crowns, also called dental caps or teeth caps, add strength to teeth and improve overall function and aesthetics. They fit securely over damaged teeth to create a more balanced and beautiful smile. Dr. Scott Finlay provides dental crowns and more dental services in Annapolis, Maryland.
This type of restoration is used to repair cracked or crooked teeth, as well as other flaws and a range of dental concerns. Dental crowns can be used as a stand-alone cosmetic dental treatment or coupled with restorative dental procedures, such as root canals.
Dental Crowns Before & After
“For a long time, I was truly embarrassed and ashamed by my teeth. I rarely smile and when I did I always covered my mouth. Now I smile all the time and with confidence.”
Many patients attest to the comfort and natural beauty of dental crowns. We have success stories from Annapolis and the Baltimore, Maryland area. See more dental crown before and after photos and read more patient testimonials in our smile gallery.
Porcelain Dental Crowns
While there are many options for materials used in dental crowns, Dr. Finlay chooses porcelain dental crowns because of their superior esthetics and long-term durability. Once thought to be less durable than metal crowns on teeth, porcelain crowns have shown excellent long-term results with proper treatment planning.
Metal-free dental crowns do not discolor the gum area like conventional metal dental caps. Especially in the smile zone, metal-free dental crowns are the gold standard for creating a beautiful, natural-looking appearance.
Your New Smile
Whether it is just one tooth or several teeth, dental crowns can provide a dramatic improvement in the overall appearance of your smile. Caring for dental crowns is just like caring for your natural teeth. It is always important to maintain a routine schedule of dental cleanings and evaluations to ensure the best long-term results.
