Dental Crowns

If a tooth has been significantly damaged by decay or injury, our skilled dentist may recommend a crown. A dental crown is a type of dental restoration that is designed to entirely encase the damaged tooth to protect and strengthen it. Dental crowns are custom made to match the shape, size, and appearance of the natural tooth. When in place, the dental crown will improve the function, health, and beauty of your smile. Dental crowns have many uses in addition to restoring damaged and decayed teeth. Your caring dentist may recommend a dental crown in order to:

  • Anchor a dental bridge
  • Protect a tooth after root canal therapy
  • Complete a dental implant
  • Enhance the appearance of your smile
  • Strengthen a fractured or weakened tooth
  • Improve the function and appearance of an irregularly shaped tooth
  • Support a large dental filling when little original tooth structure remains

We often create dental crowns from porcelain, which is a tooth-colored, durable material. This ensures that your crown is an aesthetic, long-lasting restoration. For more information on how a crown can improve your smile, please contact us today at Dental Group of Magee.
