A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. Dental crowns are a versatile treatment which can protect a weak tooth from infection, restore a damaged tooth, hold a dental bridge in place and provide a great, natural appearance.
Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth colored crown) are the most popular. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.
One of our goals is to provide our patients with the absolute best service possible. We believe that this extends to making it easier and more convenient for you to get the care you need when you need it. Offering same-day crowns and other restorations is one of the ways we can accomplish this.
