What is a crown?

A dental crown is a restoration that is used for a variety of functional and cosmetic purposes. One of the common functions of the dental crown is to help restore a tooth that has significant damage or decay. A crown is custom made to fit over the entirety of the existing structure of the tooth in order to restore the tooth to its original strength, size and shape.

What type of crowns does Feldman Dentistry use?

Dr. James Feldman and Dr. Steven Feldman are pleased to offer the exceptional benefits of zirconia crowns. Zirconia is an extraordinarily tough material that can withstand wear and tear and last for a lifetime. A zirconia crown is also aesthetically pleasing, made from a material that is translucent and similar in color to your natural teeth.

Our experienced dentists may also suggest an e.max® crown, which is made from a high-grade lithium disilicate ceramic. E.max crowns will provide you with a very close match to your natural teeth because they are transparent in color. Another advantage of e.max crowns is that they are less likely to chip than other types of crowns.

If you have any questions about these types of dental crowns in Washington, DC, or if you would like to find out if dental crowns are right for you, please feel free to contact Feldman Dentistry today at 202-362-8412 for more information.
