Teeth crowning can renew your smile

A dental crown can improve how your tooth looks and functions. Unlike a veneer, which covers only the front of your tooth, a dental crown protects your entire tooth. If one of your teeth has a large filling, is cracked or cosmetically compromised, a dental crown may be a good option for you.

Dental crown materials for your needs

The type of dental crown you need is influenced by a variety of factors, including the type of material you want and the dental need it’s addressing. Notice the difference, before and after treatment.

How teeth crowning works

Applying a crown involves removing the outer layer of a tooth. Next, a custom-made crown is placed over the existing tooth. Like other Cosmetic Dentistry options, a crown will change the look of a tooth before and after treatment—and will also protect it.

Teeth before and after dental crowns

A dental crown can help prevent further damage to a weakened tooth while improving its look and function. And if you have a missing tooth, a crown placed over a dental implant or used in a dental bridge can complete your smile.
