A dental crown may be necessary to repair a tooth that is damaged, chipped, decaying, missing entirely, or any combination of these conditions. A crown is a tooth-shaped cap composed of sturdy porcelain that is tooth-colored. We want to save your healthy tooth structure as long as possible if you still have some of it. The natural tooth structure will be fully covered by your crown, restoring the tooth’s health, functionality, and appearance.
If your jawbone is still strong enough to support a dental implant and you are completely missing a tooth, we might be able to use an implant to replace the tooth root and stabilize a brand-new tooth or full crown. Please contact our dentist to arrange a consultation if you are considering getting dental implants.
