Crowns

Protection is Important!

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cover placed over a tooth and secured with dental cement.

Crowns are generally used to improve the strength or appearance of the tooth. A dental impression usually takes place in order to fabricate the crown.

Most crowns are made from Gold and Porcelain:

  • Porcelain crowns are aesthetically more appealing and very natural looking.
  • Gold is usually used on the back teeth, is easier to use than porcelain and requires less tooth be drilled¬† away.

Crowns are used to protect broken, worn down teeth. They are also used to cover dental implants, a dental bridge or a tooth with a large filling.
