Crowns are dental restorations which are cemented into place and it fully covers a portion of a tooth or a complete tooth. As different from fillings, Crowns encase the entire visible aspect of a tooth. In effect a dental crown becomes the tooth’s new outer surface. Dental Crowns can be made of porcelain, metal, or a combination of both and cover the entire visible surface of your affected tooth to add strength and durability. Our practice will recommend Crowns for various reasons, including restoration of a tooth’s original shape, strengthening of a tooth’s surface or improving cosmetic appearance.
