Yes! Restorative dentist, Dr. Helma Philips, takes both the science and artistry of dentistry into account when choosing the materials we use to create your restorations. At our Midtown Manhattan dental office, we offer a variety of materials to choose from for dental crowns, so you always get the best results.
All-porcelain crowns – Traditionally used for tooth-colored crowns, porcelain works well for teeth that don’t require heavy loads caused by chewing. Each porcelain crown can be shaded to match the natural teeth.
e.max crowns – e.max crowns have an unsurpassed translucency and natural appearance. e.max crowns work perfectly for teeth that are visible when you smile, but also need more protection than a porcelain veneer provides.
Zirconia crowns – Also strong and long-lasting, zirconia crowns have a more opaque appearance than e.max crowns. These are perfect for posterior (back) teeth that need extra support.
Each of these tooth-colored crowns eliminates the unsightly dark margin at the gumline of older, porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns.
Whether you have a broken tooth or just had a root canal, contact Advent Dental today to book an appointment with Dr. Philips to find out which dental crown will give you great results and a winning smile.
