Do you have a tooth that is cracked, broken, misshapen or may need to be extracted, or are you in need of dentures or a dental bridge? If so, you may need a tooth crown or some dental crowns.
WHAT ARE DENTAL CROWNS?
A tooth crown is a cap for teeth. This tooth cap is made from porcelain, and though that sounds fragile and breakable, this tooth crown is remarkably durable and sturdy.
This tooth cap is made by having your dentist take a mold of your teeth, then sending the information to a lab. The lab then makes a crown that fits your mouth and is also color-matched so the tooth crown matches the rest of your smile after your procedure at our practice.
WHAT CAN DENTAL CROWNS BE USED FOR?
- A tooth crown as a tooth cap can be used to cover damaged teeth, such as broken, chipped or cracked teeth, or teeth so damaged with dental work there is a possibility of decay.
- Dental crowns are used to restore dental implants. These are a special tooth cap as they top the dental implants to create a “new” tooth.
- Dental crowns are used on each side of a partial denture or dental bridge.
