If you want a smile that’s your crowning glory, you may need a crown to cover a tooth to help restore it to its normal shape and size.
Dental crowns (also known as “caps”) are custom-made restorations that are created in a dental laboratory and fitted over your natural teeth by our team of dental professionals. Crowns can be used for a wide variety of common dental issues, including for teeth that are chipped, cracked, or otherwise damaged, or for cosmetic purposes.
Dental crowns improve more than just the appearance of your smile. A crown can help strengthen a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining to hold the filling. Crowns can also be used to attach bridges, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that’s already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. It’s also used to cover a dental implant. They can also be used to replace old, outdated, worn, or unsightly past restorations.
Beautiful & Durable Dental Restorations
Patients often choose dental crowns as restorations for their existing teeth because of their comfort, durability, and beauty. A crown relies on the natural tooth structure for support, which offers a strong base for the restoration. They are made of durable dental materials, often lasting patients many years before requiring replacement.
