A crown is a full coverage restoration that is used on badly damaged teeth, teeth that have had a root canal or on top of a dental implant. Crowns are made of a porcelain material allowing it to blend best with other teeth. A crown can make your teeth stronger and
improve your appearance. Most crowns last for several years with proper oral hygiene and preventive dental care.
Many of our patients want to know what a crown is or why it is necessary. The simple answer is that crowns beautify, protect and strengthen your smile. If you’ve had a broken down or damaged tooth, a crown can be just what your smile needs.
