Crowns restore and protect teeth
A crown is a custom-made restoration that completely covers your tooth. Crowns not only repair and strengthen a damaged tooth, they can also be used to improve our appearance by covering a discolored or misshapen tooth.
Crowns require at least two visits. We’ll prepare and shape your tooth, then take impressions. A dental lab will make a model from these impressions, and use the model to create your new crown form porcelain, gold or other alloys, or a combination of these materials.
