A dental crown is placed when there is not enough tooth structure remaining to restore the tooth with a filling. To begin the procedure, we will gently remove all the decay from the tooth. We then take a custom-molded impression of the tooth, which will be used to form the crown and create the perfect fit.
Crowns improve both the strength and cosmetic appearance of the tooth. Crowns can be made from various materials, including zirconia and gold, if requested. Zirconia is white, blending seamlessly with the rest of your teeth, and durable, so it is unlikely to chip or break.
