Dental Crowns

If you have a tooth that is missing a lot of structure due to a large, failed filling or a large amount of decay, Dr. Aunon would recommend a crown be used for restoration. The conventional crowns made of mixed-metal would require additional healthy, viable tooth structure to be ground down – in fact, the tooth is usually reduced to about 1/3 of its original size–in order to provide enough adhesive surface for the crown to be cemented to.

Traditional crown cement has poor adhesive qualities, and large amounts of it must be used in order to keep the metal crown in place. Needing large amounts of surface area to bond to, this results in the grinding down of additional tooth structure for placement of the crown.
