Dental crowns are used when large cavities threaten the overall health of a tooth. Crowns are placed by our dentist to completely cap or encase a tooth or dental implant. They are bonded to the tooth using dental cement.
If you suffer a cracked or broken tooth, your dentist is likely to recommend a crown, a custom-fitted cap, to cover it and restore the tooth's shape, strength and appearance. Traditional crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.Read more about Traditional Crowns
