A crown is used to entirely cover a damaged tooth. Crowns add strength, durability and tooth stability. A crown can also be used to improve the appearance, shape or alignment of a damaged tooth and can be used in many instances such as; to protect weak or decaying teeth, to hold dental bridges in their place or to cover implants or teeth that cannot support a filling.
Crowns can be made of metal, resin, ceramic, or porcelain. We can discuss the best option for you in your appointment.
