Reshape your unhealthy teeth with tailor-made dental crowns.
What are dental crowns?
Dental crowns are artificial pieces used to cover the visible part of a tooth without removing its root. This allows using existing healthy tissues and recover their strength and look. Unlike implants, dental crowns are placed on a tooth’s stump, or may cover an entire tooth if it’s too small. In general, that means grinding and buffing the existing tooth to make room for the crown. That is a slightly invasive procedure made under local anesthetics.
With dental crowns you will not only get your tooth’s functionality back, but you will also recover the confidence in your smile. Resistant and durable, dental crowns are a very reliable option to smile and masticate without problems.
Benefits of using dental crowns
- Recovery of dental function
- They’re discrete and comfortable
- Tailored in size, color and shape
- High resistance and durability
A dental crown is the recommended option when some teeth are smaller than others, or one tooth has suffered great damage affecting its look or functionality.
In general, placing a dental crown requires a root canal and preparing the dental piece by grinding and polishing it to make it smaller. Then, a crown crafted and adapted to the shape and space available is placed. The final result is a cover attached to the tooth’s root. The stump will therefore be covered and aligned with the other teeth. That redistributes and balances the masticatory strength in a cosmetic way, improving significantly the person’s life quality.
Arte Sano uses the latest technology. We have replaced traditional materials (metal and porcelain-coated metal) with last-generation zirconia. It’s resistant, highly durable, and your dental crowns will be totally unnoticeable.
Dental crowns can be placed on any tooth, yet each case has different needs and they may not always the best option. Visit us and let us advise!

There is a large variety of treatments available when it comes to recovering oral function and looks. The most suitable for each person depends on factors such as habits, lifestyle and the problem itself. But the person’s needs and objectives are always the decisive factors.
When the problem is minor damage, it’s easier to make simple composite veneers. However, more complex cases require options like dental crowns, if the entire tooth needs to be replaced, or dental bridges, able to cover or replace several teeth with a single fixation.
Dental crowns are recommended for cases where dental deterioration is visible and affects correct speech or mastication. It is a moderately invasive procedure given the need to grind and polish the tooth or performing a root canal, yet it’s a long-lasting solution with proven success in providing comfort, functionality and confidence in the long-term.
At the Arte Sano Clinic we use modern, high-end quality materials to achieve perfect results and reduce all risk of dental crowns breaking or peeling off. Zirconia is more durable and resistant than regular porcelain, and in addition, it doesn’t lose its color or get stained over time. Nevertheless, it requires frequent cleaning and maintenance. We also aim at reducing the esthetic impact of the procedure by providing a temporary acrylic cover while the final dental crown is crafted in the lab.
We know how important it is to be able to chew, speak and smile naturally, and we take this procedure very seriously, keeping our priority on people’s good health and well-being. And a prior examination of your teeth condition will let us offer the best options for your needs.
