Why do I need dental crowns?

A dental crown is a restoration for a tooth with extensive decay or damage brought on by a variety of causes. Teeth can break away through excessive wear, accidental damage, deterioration of old fillings, decay, or disease. Dental Crowns are placed to cover the entire tooth and protect its healthy foundation.

The most common materials for crowns include porcelain, ceramic, or porcelain-fused-to-metal; other choices include resin or metal alloys (such as gold). Each material has its advantages and disadvantages, and our team will consider several factors when determining which to use for you.

A dental crown performs double-duty, not only restoring your mouth to full function, but also creating an aesthetic replacement for the full tooth that is no longer there, the finishing touch on a root canal procedure or after a dental implant placement.
