Restoring teeth often requires the use of cosmetic bonging, however when a large portion of the tooth must be removed, dental crowns may be required. Dental crowns, sometimes referred to as “caps,” replaces the outer layer of the tooth, restructuring the natural shape and size. By covering the outermost portion of the tooth, a crown helps to restore the natural appearance of the tooth, providing you with a smile you can be proud of. A crown can be also used to:
- Attach bridges
- Protect a tooth from fracturing
- Cover oddly shaped or discolored teeth
- Cover implants
Crowns typically require two office visits, sometimes more for fitting. We are happy to provide more information in the overall process in your next office visit to Dobson Ranch Dental Care.
