A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and improve its appearance.  A crown may be necessary for a variety of reasons:

*teeth that are cracked or worn down

*teeth that are weakened by a large cavity or filling

*teeth that have had a root canal

*covering badly shaped or discolored teeth as a means to improve the look of your smile

*improved esthetics

*to cover a dental implant

Crowns play an important role in dental health, and if you are in need of one, please contact our office today.
