Dental Crowns – Protecting Your
Teeth and Keeping You Smiling
Attractive, natural-looking crowns blend in with your smile while they protect chipped or damaged teeth.
A crown is a protective covering that restores and improves the tooth’s appearance while also shielding and strengthening it. Permanently fixed in place, your crown will last for many years.
Your dentist may prescribe a crown if you’ve had a very large filling or a root canal. A crown may also be used to hold a dental bridge in place or as a realistic replacement tooth with an implant. When teeth are misshapen or badly discolored, crowns (also known as caps) can make a big difference in improving your appearance. Today, with advanced materials and state-of-the-art techniques, crowns are custom-made to be both durable and lifelike.
