Dental Crowns in Boynton Beach


“Beautiful teeth are one of the essentials in being a woman regardless of age. Their natural beauty strengthen my confidence and enhance my professional and personal life. They are a result of the fine work of a talented young dentist.”
—Dr. Toni Fuss Kirkwood-Tucker

Crowns are the restoration of choice when a filling will no longer suffice. Once a filling occupies 50% or more of the width of a tooth, a crown is indicated. Crowns surround the tooth, bracing it together, whereas a large filling acts as a wedge, weakening the tooth. Teeth with large fillings are prone to breaking or splitting.

You may need a crown for the following reasons:

  • Your tooth has a large cavity.
  • Your tooth has had root canal therapy.
  • Your tooth has a large, weak filling.
  • To replace a failing or unacceptable existing crown.
  • For cosmetic improvement.

Crowns can be made of several different materials, each of which may be indicated for different situations:

  • Gold
  • “Porcelain Fused to Metal” (A metal substructure with a porcelain covering)
  • All-Ceramic (Porcelain with no metal) – This is the latest in technology and becoming increasingly popular.
