Crowns are tooth-shaped caps fitted over a tooth to preserve and restore its shape and look, strengthening and improving the appearance of cracked or damaged teeth. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. Crowns are also a great way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped.
A dental crown can either be made of metal, ceramic, porcelain, or a combination of the three, depending on the condition and location of the tooth. Should you require an emergency dental crown, our in-house dental laboratory can accommodate same-day crown fabrications for your convenience.
