A dental crown can return structure, strength, and function to a tooth with extensive decay or damage. Designed to fit snugly and function as a healthy tooth, a dental crown will protect your tooth from further damage and preserve the jaw’s correct natural alignment. We use precious metal, porcelain pressed (or fused) to metal, and all-ceramic crowns. We will assist our patient in choosing the best alternative for their mouth. To maintain a fully white smile, we recommend all-ceramic crowns. Recent technology has made all-ceramic crowns extremely durable and long lasting, making them popular with dentists as well as patients. We can design, fit, and place your crowns in just two short appointments. Once a crown is placed, you can care for it as you do your natural teeth. Conscientious brushing twice a day and daily flossing will protect the base of your crown from bacterial growth. Be sure to see us at least two times each year for professional cleanings and a preventive exam.
