Crowns

A crown is designed to cover a tooth to strengthen and protect the remaining healthy tooth structure that has been damaged by excessive fracturing, heavy decay, or failure of a previous restoration due to damage or disease. Root canal treated teeth should also be crowned if sufficient tooth structure is missing or if it is determined that a tooth will last longer by protecting it with a crown. There are several different materials from which a crown can be made. Our office commonly uses porcelain crowns due to their high strength and aesthetics. Our crowns are custom fabricated by artists in a dental laboratory, specific to each patient’s prescription.
