Crowns are caps cemented to one or more teeth to protect, strengthen, and improve the look of your smile. Crowns are made from various substances including: porcelain, metal, resin, and porcelain fused to metal.
Crowns can shield your teeth from cavities and restore old, worn out, or damaged silver fillings. They are also commonly used to fasten a bridge or finish for a dental implant.
There are several types of crowns, each providing unique functions. We are happy explain the different types and help determine which crown is right for you.
Generally, we will place a temporary crown while you wait for your permanent crown to be made. This helps already cracked or damaged teeth from worsening and becoming more painful.
