A tooth that is broken, damaged, or in general poor condition can be harmful to your health. It can also affect feeling comfortable about your tooth and your self-confidence.
Dental crowns are almost exactly the way they sound – a crown, or cap, for your tooth. Dental crowns help restore a tooth, resulting in a truly aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Dental crowns can:
- Protect a weak tooth from breaking
- Hold a cracked tooth together
- Cover and support a damaged or decayed tooth
- Cover a severely discolored tooth
- Restore a broken or severely worn tooth
Crowns are typically made from porcelain to provide both strength and a natural appearance. Once treatment is complete, continue routine brushing and flossing. Keep regular office visits to help your crown last many years.
We also offer single tooth restoration crowns on the same day using our Cerec machine. CEREC is a technology for restoring damaged teeth, and this restoration can be completed in a single visit to the doctor's office.
