Making corrections to these fractured or decayed teeth is critical not only for appearance, but also for everyday functions such as speaking or eating. Dental crowns can bring your smile back to its highest potential.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are used to restore teeth that have gone through major damage or decay. A crown can restore your tooth back to its original shape, strength, and appearance. Crowns can also prevent further decay from happening if the patient has proper oral hygiene.

Made from metal amalgam, white composite, or white porcelain, dental crowns fit directly over a damaged tooth, bringing it back to its original form again. Crowns are essentially a cap for your tooth. Crowns help to:

  • Restore fractured or broken teeth
  • Hold pieces of a broken tooth together
