A crown, also known as a cap, completely covers a damaged tooth for restoration and protection. Dental crowns are made of porcelain, metal alloys, or both. A porcelain crown is most popular since it looks similar to a natural tooth. A crown does not only protect the tooth, but it will also help with your tooth’s alignment and visual appeal. Crowns are needed in the following situations: Attachment of a bridge Covering an implant Covering a discolored tooth Covering a tooth which went through a root canal treatment Restoration and protection of a fractured tooth Replacement of a filling when there is insufficient tooth structure Dental Health Center utilizes fillings, crowns, Invisalign, and effective teeth whitening options that help you achieve that beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.
