A crown (cap) is a full coverage restoration that is placed on teeth that have large fillings or have lost a lot of their structure. This could be from tooth decay, natural tooth fracture, or fracture of an older larger type restoration or filling. The crown offers an esthetic and functional restoration by protecting the tooth from chewing forces and future decay.
We offer several different types of crowns ranging from full porcelain crowns, all gold crowns, and porcelain fused to metal crowns with each type of crown offering certain advantages specific to the patients tooth. Click here to look at our own patients results from crowns!
Composite resins are also called tooth-colored fillings. With the latest in dental bonding and adhesion technology we can preserve as much tooth structure as possible during the preparation. Tooth-colored restorations blend into the tooth and are much more esthetic than silver fillings.
