Monolithic crowns mean that the entire crown is contoured from a single material. Traditional crowns are often made of metal or ceramic, but they are also veneered or fused with porcelain. This can unfortunately create weak spots in the crown. Therefore, monolithic crowns are becoming increasingly popular for patients who want to achieve a stronger and longer-lasting crown.
At Huebner Smiles Dentistry and Orthodontics, we offer the innovative IPS e.max crown, which is a monolithic crown composed of lithium disilicate, a top grade material known for its toughness and opaque qualities. With e.max, patients gain improved fit, improved esthetics, and improved durability in their dental crown. This crown type is also budget-friendly and highly versatile in terms of restoring your smile.
Zirconia Crowns For Improved Durability
Another durable, chip-resistant crown that we offer is an all-zirconia crown called BruxZir. Zirconia crowns are uniquely designed to withstand extreme functional activity, including bruxism (teeth grinding). By choosing a full zirconia crown, you won't have to worry about your crown cracking or chipping like you would a veneered ceramic crown. Our monolithic crowns are customized to match your tooth color and glazed with a final shine to maximize your smile's natural beauty.
When choosing our modern dental practice for your restorative dentistry, you can trust that we will use the most advanced technology and proven techniques available to produce your ideal results. Your crown will be fabricated using precise measurements for the most comfortable, long-term fit. We strive to restore your smile in a way that allows you to feel completely confident when both smiling and chewing. By providing e.max, Zirconia and BruxZir crowns, we can maximize your dental investment and help you avoid the need for unexpected crown chips or repairs.
If you want a dental crown that offers top ranked durability with the color, translucence and beauty of a natural tooth, contact Huebner Smiles Dentistry and Orthodontics today. By scheduling an appointment at our San Antonio dental practice, we can determine which monolithic crown material is best for you.
