A dental crown is a secure cap that is placed over a damaged tooth to cover it and restore its shape, size, strength, and improve its appearance. A crown is cemented into place and fully covers the entire visible area of the tooth. It can be made out of ceramic or porcelain to guarantee that it beautifully matches the color of your natural teeth.
Your smile may benefit from a dental crown if you:
Need to protect a weak tooth from breaking or to hold together parts of a tooth
Need to restore an already broken or severely worn down tooth
Have a cavity that is too large for a dental filling
Want to cover a discolored or badly shaped tooth and improve your smile
Have a missing tooth and need to hold a dental bridge in place
Need to cover a dental implant
There are multiple different crown styles. Find out what crown is best for you and your needs, budget, and aesthetic preferences by contacting our experienced cosmetic dentist today.
