Strong and beautiful: Dental crowns in Boise, ID

Crowns are one of the oldest types of dental restorations. They are intended to restore both the function and the appearance of your smile. Yet crown materials and techniques continue to evolve and improve. The team at Horizon Dental Group – Dr. Sarah Enright & Associates in Boise, ID has restored countless smiles with contemporary crown technology.

Crown basics

Each of your natural teeth has a crown—the enamel-covered portion visible above gum tissue. A dental crown is a hollow cap shaped just like a tooth. It fits over a prepared tooth or an implant abutment, affixed securely in place.

A dental crown can be used in these situations:

  • An area of decay so large that, once removed, there is not enough tooth structure to support a filling
  • A piece broken off a tooth
  • Hold pieces of a fractured tooth together
  • Provide strength and protection for a tooth that has had root canal therapy
  • For cosmetic improvement in a tooth with deep discoloration or odd shape or size
  • Repair teeth that are worn down from bruxing (clenching or grinding).
  • As part of dental bridgework to replace missing teeth
  • As the finishing touch on a dental implant

The overwhelming philosophy at Horizon Dental Group is to make a thorough assessment, then use the right materials for the individual and the condition. Crowns are no exception. We use aesthetic restorations that blend beautifully with natural dentition.

Working with a professional dental laboratory for the fabrication of crowns, we have a variety of ceramics at our disposal. For example, e.max crowns are a good choice for anterior (front) teeth. They are made of lithium disilicate, a material with excellent durability and an opalescence quality that closely mimics natural enamel.

Lustrous zirconia crowns are extremely strong. We suggest these for posterior (back) teeth subjected to a great deal of bite force. Durable zirconia crowns may also be recommended if you have bruxism, meaning you clench and grind your teeth during sleep. Are you ready for dental treatment truly tailored to your needs?

They are simply amazing. I have whitening done with other dentists before and not happy with the lasting effects. Since the first time I came here, I’ve felt that they are very professional and transparent towards me. The procedure was done effectively and the results lasted much longer than what I expected based on my previous experiences. I recommend them to everyone.
