Glendale Dentist Talks About The Differences Between Old And Modern Crowns

Written by Dr. McKay on Feb 23, 2021

Restorative dentistry technologies have come a long way in recent years. That is why our Glendale dentists are so proud to offer our patients the highest quality dental crowns available today. The crowns we deliver are custom-fit and designed to meet our individual patients’ needs. Keep reading to learn more about what sets these restorations apart.


For a long time, amalgam fillings were the gold standard in restorative dentistry. Well no longer! We now offer dental restorations that are totally metal and mercury-free. Using composite resin and/or porcelain, our team can transform the appearance and functionality of your smile without the disadvantages associated with mercury.

Possibilities in Porcelain

Porcelain itself has advanced in recent years, becoming stronger and more durable. The primary benefit to the patient is that our team does not have to remove as much natural dental material as we once did in order to make a porcelain restoration “fit.” There is less bulk for which we need to make room. 


Modern restorations are completely customized to meet the patient’s unique specifications. The shape, size, color, and luminosity of your restoration will blend seamlessly with your existing smile. 

Whether you’re dealing with aging restorations or you’re ready to treat existing damage, our Glendale dentists are here to help you reclaim a happy and healthy smile. Please don’t hesitate to call our team, or use the Contact Us page on our site to submit an inquiry, and we’ll get right back to you.
