Dental crowns have been around for thousands of years. For a long time, metal crowns were the standard.
But not anymore.
Today, you can get dental crowns that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. If you live in or near Boynton Beach, FL, Dr. Hugh B. Rosenblatt would be happy to place a BruxZir zirconia crown for you.

Why People Need Crowns
Dental crowns are a great solution for a number of dental problems that could affect your teeth. Crowns bring back smiles and more!
One of the most common reasons people get dental crowns is to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay. This could be because you’ve had a filling replaced multiple times, and your tooth can no longer support another filling. This also could be because you have a large cavity, and a filling won’t be enough to fix it.
We’ve placed several crowns on cracked teeth as well. This happens more often than many people realize. Biting down on something hard like an unpopped kernel of popcorn, a piece of ice, or a piece of hard candy can cause a crack to form in a tooth. Cracks also may develop over time in patients who clench or grind their teeth together. (Millions of Americans do this in their sleep without realizing it.)
Broken teeth can be repaired with a dental crown. You can break teeth as a result of accidents and injuries involving trauma to the mouth or face.
You also may want to get a dental crown for cosmetic reasons.
If you have a tooth that is discolored, it may stand out from the rest of your smile for all the wrong reasons. Similarly, you may have a tooth that appears small or misshapen compared to the rest of your smile. A dental crown can correct that for you.
With your new crown in place, you will be able to eat, speak, and smile like you have a set of healthy, full teeth once again.
Confidence in Your Crown
The physical changes to your smile are only one of the benefits of getting a dental crown. We have seen how tooth restorations also restore patients’ confidence in their smiles.
So many people have come to our office in Boynton Beach who feel like they need to hide their smiles because of a broken, discolored, decayed, or misshapen teeth.
After getting a dental crown, they feel free to smile again. They feel comfortable speaking again, too.
You can enjoy these benefits with one of our BruxZir zirconia crowns. When compared to other all-ceramic crowns, zirconia score high in by any measure.
When it comes to aesthetics, zirconia received excellent scores, which means it looks like a natural tooth. Likewise, zirconia resists staining, which means your crown will maintain its natural look for a long time with proper care.
In terms of durability, zirconia is resistant to chipping and fracturing as well. One study even showed that gold crowns were more likely to wear down than zirconia ones.
With these crowns, other people won’t know that one of your teeth is “fake” unless you decide to let them in on your secret.
