Dental crowns replace or cover your missing or broken teeth and restore beauty and functionality to your smile. A dental crown is a cap that fits over your tooth to restore shape, size or strength and is usually required when the structure of your tooth becomes damaged. Dental crowns fix this by encasing your tooth and protecting it from further damage.
Dental crowns are usually used in the following situations:
- If you have a weak tooth due to decay
- If you have a tooth that has been broken due to injury
- If your tooth becomes severely worn down
- For added support, if your tooth has a large filling and not much tooth left
- To hold your dental bridge in place
- To cover up unattractive qualities such as damaged or discolored teeth
Porcelain crowns are available as a relatively inexpensive option for replacing your missing tooth, covering your damaged tooth, or anchoring dental bridges. Modern crowns are made of durable tooth-colored materials designed to match your surrounding teeth, making them an attractive restorative choice.
Custom Crowns and Dental Bridges
A variety of factors are carefully considered when we provide custom-made porcelain crowns and dental bridges, including your age, skin tone, gender, smile, face shape and personality. Our goal is to provide crowns and bridges that look natural and complement your individual characteristics.
Single-Visit Tooth-Colored Crowns
Our dental office is unique because we provide tooth-colored porcelain crowns in just one visit. In the past, multiple visits to our office were required. Now, advanced CEREC® technology allows us to craft custom-made, tooth-colored porcelain crowns. Your crown will be made while you relax, and it will be placed the very same day!
