Dental Crowns are meant to restore both function and beauty to a tooth. Crowns are most often prescribed when a tooth has extensive decay, is cracked or broken, has had a large filling which is breaking down, has discolored, and/ or has a problematic size or shape.
Crowns are a good choice for correcting more sizeable challenges in a tooth’s size, shape, color, or alignment.
- Crowns only require two visits
- Crown materials are variable and there is a choice between white gold, yellow gold (for back teeth), porcelain fused to metal (PFM) or all ceramic materials
- Crowns can enhance the appearance and restore the function of a damaged tooth
Crowns are highly resistant to staining and chipping and can last a very long time when properly cared for.
