Crowns can serve many purposes in your smile. Dr. [doctor_name] may recommend a crown to:

  • Protect a weak tooth from breaking
  • Restore a broken or worn down tooth
  • Cover and support a tooth with a large filling
  • Hold a dental bridge in place
  • Cover a misshapen or badly discolored tooth
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Make a cosmetic modification

We are proud to offer high-quality, custom-made dental crowns at our office. A dental crown is a cap that is placed over a tooth and cemented into place. This improves the shape, size, strength, and appearance of the tooth. Also, crowns are shaped like a tooth so they will not interfere with chewing. There are different types of dental crowns available, including stainless steel, gold, porcelain fused to metal, resin, ceramic or porcelain, and zirconia. Stainless steel crowns are often used as temporary crowns while the permanent crown is being prepared. Permanent crowns are custom made to fit over your tooth and to function well in your bite. There are pros and cons to each crown type; metal crowns last the longest but do not look natural, while porcelain crowns look the most natural but are not as durable. We encourage you to ask our dentist which type of dental crown in [city], [state], is best for you. Call our office today for more information.
