Dental Crown Treatments
Restore and Strengthen Tooth Function and Appearance
Are you embarrassed about your smile? Do your teeth show signs of severe decay, cracking, or extreme wear? Dental crown treatments can help!
By covering affected teeth with a dental crown, your local dental clinic can restore your smile’s look and function. Once placed over your teeth, dental crowns become the new outer surface and are designed to look just like the real thing!
Do I Need Crowns?
Crowns are ideal if you:
- Have heavily damaged teeth, with deep chips or noticeable cracks
- Have teeth in advanced stages of decay
- Want strong, long-lasting dental restorations
- Want to restore the appearance of damaged teeth
Don’t hesitate to consult one of our dentists for more information and to choose your best course of action to restore your smile.
How Dental Crowns Work
A dental crown can be made from a variety of materials including metal alloys, porcelain, ceramic, or a combination of materials. They “crown” your existing tooth with a cap above the gumline.
Before placing a dental crown, a dentist must make an impression of the tooth and surrounding area so a crown can be made to your exact measurements. When it’s time to place the crown, the tooth in question must be filed down to accommodate the crown, which is sealed in place after a comfortable fit is made.
