Crowns in Winston-Salem

Dr. Nelson Happy With Wife at PicnicWhat is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a protective covering or “cap” that covers the entire tooth. Dental crowns can make teeth stronger and replace any missing tooth structure. 

When are dental crowns a great option for you?

  • When a back tooth is cracked
  • When a tooth has large areas of decay or cavities
  • When a front tooth has a large chip in it
  • To protect a tooth after root canal treatment

What do crowns do for you as a patient? 

Crowns are predictable and reliable. If Dr. Benton or Dr. Nelson recommend a crown for one of your teeth, that treatment option is the most predictable and longest-lasting choice for that tooth.

They are made from the strongest materials. Crowns cover the entire chewing surface of the tooth with a very strong material that is highly resistant to fracture or chipping. This means you can enjoy your favorite foods without worry.

Our dental crowns are very esthetic. Dental crowns are also very esthetic and are indistinguishable from other natural teeth. They are also more resistant to staining which allows you to smile with confidence.

They feel just like your natural tooth. Dental crowns feel the same to your tongue and lips because they replicate the natural anatomy of your natural tooth.

Crowns are maintained just like your natural teeth. Brushing and flossing are performed in the same manner as with natural teeth.

Crown provide protection from future decay. The tooth is much more resistant to dental decay and cavities because the crown material cannot be decayed by bacteria.

A dental crown can be made of many different materials

  • We'll choose the best material for your mouth. There are many crown materials available. Drs. Benton and Nelson will choose the best option for your mouth. 
  • Beautiful tooth-colored materials are our most popular. There are tooth-colored crown materials, such as porcelain and zirconia, that will match the natural shade of your tooth perfectly.
  • Gold is also available (upon patient request)Gold can also be a treatment option for the back teeth if the patient requests it. Some gold restorations can last over 70 years!
