What Is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a cap that is fitted over your visible tooth. Our office utilizes durable, and high-quality materials to custom make each crown, including precious metals and natural-looking porcelain. We work hard to make sure your crown fits your tooth just right. Our dental crowns are individually created and are an affordable and popular way to recover your teeth's natural beauty and strength.
How Do Dental Crowns Work?
A dental crown is placed over a damaged or weakened tooth in order to protect and restore it. The dental crown or cap can be made from a variety of materials. With certain materials, the dental crown can blend in with the rest of the tooth, so no-one will know you have a dental crown. It will look and act just like a natural tooth.
Sometimes dental crowns are used to assist in the replacement of missing teeth. This is done via a dental bridge, where caps are placed on the teeth on each side of the gap (where the missing tooth was). The crowns in this case are there to hold the new replacement tooth in place.
