Dental Crowns Information
Your Dentist will recommend the best type of crown for your dental restoration needs based on the chewing placement and structure of the tooth or implant that requires protection. There are three types of crowns. Each type has its own characteristics and qualities:
Porcelain is attractive, strong, stable, and highly resistant to wear. It offers a high level of biocompatibility because it does not contain metal.
A porcelain crown provides the best natural color match to the rest of your teeth and is an excellent choice for front teeth.
Metal offers strength and endurance. A metal crown may be recommended for back teeth where the forces of biting and chewing are the greatest. A metal crown rarely chips or breaks. In addition, it requires minimal removal of tooth structure.
A gold or other high-noble metal crown offers biocompatibility. A base metal crown is often the least expensive treatment option; however, it lacks biocompatibility and may cause allergic reactions or gumline discoloration.
Porcelain-fused-to-metal offers the benefits of a natural surface color that resembles the rest of your teeth and the strength of a metal substructure.
While there are several advantages to selecting this type of crown, it requires the removal of more tooth structure than other types of crowns. This means that there is greater potential for patient discomfort during the treatment procedure.
Very accommodating and friendly staff! Appointments are always on time and when you arrive the staff is always there to greet and take care of you. The office is very warm and comfortable, you feel relaxed and clam throughout your entire appointment. I would recommend this Dental office to everyone!

When I moved to South Florida from NJ 6 years ago I was worried about finding a good dentist since I've been seeing the same dentist since I was 15. Thankfully, I met Dr. Patty and she and her team delivered an experience beyond my expectations. This is not your ordinary routine exam.

Dr. Patty and her staff were extremely professional and helpful. I felt amazingly relaxed even after I was told I needed a root canal! Even though I was a new patient, I felt confident that I was in good hands.
