If your tooth is significantly injured or decayed, our talented dentists may recommend a crown. A dental crown is a restoration used to restore the damaged tooth to its optimal function and health. The dental crown is designed and custom made to fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gums. This restores the tooth to its natural shape, appearance, and size. Dental crowns can be created from a number of materials, including porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, and gold. Porcelain crowns are often chosen because they are an excellent match for the color and translucence of natural teeth. Drs. Leavitt and Evans will help you determine which type of dental crown will best meet your personals needs and desires. A dental crown can improve your smile by:
- Supporting a dental bridge
- Strengthening a weakened or fractured tooth
- Protecting a tooth after root canal therapy
- Restoring a severely damaged tooth
- Improving the appearance and function of a misshapen tooth
