Sometimes, a tooth can be damaged by injury, decay, or age and needs more restorative treatment than a simple dental filling. When a tooth needs substantial protection, treatment, and strength, our dentist may recommend a dental crown. You’ve probably heard of dental crowns before, but would you like to learn more? What is a dental crown and when are they used?

Dental crowns are typically made of porcelain, gold, or porcelain fused to metal, and they are designed to completely cover the natural tooth. Dental crowns are custom designed for each patient to achieve a natural-looking and comfortable result. Crowns are used in both restorative and cosmetic services; not only does a dental crown protect and strengthen a tooth, but it can also dramatically improve the tooth’s aesthetic appearance. Dental crowns are typically included in a root canal treatment. With the proper care, a dental crown can last for decades.

Dental crowns are popular treatment for patients in need of restorative and cosmetic service for their smile.
