DENTAL CROWN

Dental crowns are a cap or cover cemented onto a weak tooth or dental implants.

Crowns can be used to fulfill many functional or aesthetic purposes– strengthening a misaligned tooth, covering a discolored tooth, or protecting a fractured tooth or a tooth with previous root canal treatment. Crowns are matched to the natural color of patients’ teeth to provide a natural appearance.

A crown can last a long time provided the patient practices good oral hygiene and has regular dental check-ups, which minimize the risk of decay forming around its margins.
