Crowns

If you want a smile that's your crowning glory, you may need a crown to cover a tooth and restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance.

It can cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't enough tooth structure remaining. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that's already broken. A crown is a way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. It's also used to cover a dental implant as well as teeth that have had root canals.

Have you ever seen a friend or coworker smile and they had a dark area at the gum line of a tooth. This is caused from metal being used underneath a porcelain crown. With the advances in cosmetic dental materials, these types of crowns are no longer necessary and they are not used at our office. Metal free dentistry can provide a like appearance. These all porcelain bonded restorations are artistically designed to enhance the smile that can last you a lifetime.
