Customized Restorations - Porcelain Crowns Return Aesthetics and Function
When a tooth is too badly damaged to repair with a filling, a full coverage crown (sometimes called a “cap”) may be necessary. Crowns, unlike fillings, cover the entire surface of a tooth up to your gumlines. Our dentists may recommend a crown if:
- A large portion of the tooth is broken or decayed
- You have just had a root canal completed
- There are aesthetic concerns
- Excessive grinding/bruxism has worn the tooth down
Your comfort is our priority
Sitting through a crown doesn’t have to be painful, although it might take a longer time than a filling. Your comfort is our first priority at all times. We have a variety of sedation options available to ensure that your treatment is as relaxing as possible.
