What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is restoration that is custom designed and fabricated to match the original shape and size of a tooth that has suffered from serious damage or decay. When a dental filling is not sufficient to restore the tooth’s structure and health, our dentist may suggest a dental crown. The crown fits over the top of the damaged tooth, covering it completely up to the gums. This restores the tooth’s health, function, and appearance. Your crown will be custom crafted to fit your smile aesthetically and comfortably, and it can be made from gold, porcelain fused to metal, or all porcelain to fit your personal preferences and needs.
