Why get a dental crown?
Dental crowns serve as a tooth-shaped cap over an existing tooth. A crown restores a damaged tooth to normal size, shape, color, and function. Once cemented into place, the crown will encase the top part of the tooth above the gum line. The crown works to not only improve the appearance of the original tooth but to make it stronger too!
There are various types of dental crowns, but the most popular is the ceramic dental crown. It is the preferred choice for its superior natural color match and durability.
You should consider a dental crown if you want to:
- Protect a decayed tooth from breaking
- Hold together parts of a cracked tooth
- Recover an already broken tooth
- Restore and save a tooth that has been severely worn down
