If you’re considering dental crowns in the Edmonton area in an effort to restore functionality and a bright smile, Dr. Christine Fialka-Eshenko is well-equipped to help you meet your dental goals. She offers different types of dental crowns so that you can customize your approach to the treatment.
Dr. Fialka-Eshenko will evaluate your condition to ensure that you are a good candidate for dental crowns. If you are, she will help you choose the type of crown that is right for your specific circumstances.
The types of dental crowns available are:
- Porcelain crowns: Made entirely of porcelain, these are aesthetically pleasing crowns that more easily blend in with your other teeth. However, they tend to lack the strength and durability of other options.
- Porcelain fused to metal: A metal shell that has a thin veneer of porcelain overlaid on it, these dental crowns form a middle ground. More natural than gold crowns and less than porcelain, they’re also stronger than porcelain but not as durable as gold. They also cause more wear to adjacent teeth.
- Gold: These dental crowns provide unparalleled strength and durability. However, they are also less natural looking. Gold dental crowns are often excellent options for back teeth that aren’t easily seen.
Whichever dental crown option you choose, you can trust that Dr. Fialka-Eshenko will give you the care and skillful treatment you deserve.
