Different Types of Dental Crowns from Dr. Jamil Alkhoury in Brentwood
When patients in the area of Brentwood, CA are faced with the need for dental restorations, they are encouraged to work with a dentist in the community who has information on different types of dental crowns. There are many options available out there to patients, but Dr. Jamil Alkhoury and his team believe in using porcelain dental crowns for the repair and protection of natural teeth.

Why porcelain dental crowns?

While there are crowns made of materials such as metals and golds, porcelain dental crowns are the types of crowns most commonly recommended. This is because these crowns are not only strong but match the existing teeth—making the dental crowns practically indistinguishable from the natural teeth. This is important to many of our patients who don't want their restorations to look noticeable to others.

What are dental crowns for?

There are many situations when patients may benefit from the placement of a dental crown.
  • Crowns are used to cover teeth that have extremely large fillings in place, which affect the strength of the remaining structure.
  • Crowns can be placed over the abutment of a dental implant to give the appearance of a natural tooth when teeth are lost or extracted.
  • Crowns cover teeth that may be permanently stained or broken.
  • Crowns can be bonded to false teeth called pontics to fabricate a dental bridge for the replacement of one or more teeth in a row within the dental arch.
  • Crowns are placed over teeth that are chipped or cracked, providing an extra layer of strength and protection.
