What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is a type of restoration used to repair a severely damaged or decayed tooth. Our experienced dentist at Gentle Dental Arts may recommend a crown to restore the natural shape, appearance, and size of your original tooth. Dental crowns are custom-made and can be created from tooth-colored materials, such as porcelain, to provide you with a natural-looking, aesthetic restoration. The dental crown completely encases the damaged tooth beginning at the gum line to restore the function, health, and beauty of your smile.
Do I need a dental crown?
Dr. Alexander Larsen may suggest a crown to restore your smile by:
- Repairing a significantly decayed or damaged tooth
- Attaching a dental bridge
- Completing a dental implant
- Strengthening a fractured or weakened tooth
- Protecting a tooth after root canal therapy
