You may need a crown if you:
- have a cavity that is too large for a conventional filling.
- have a chipped, cracked, worn-down, or weakened tooth.
- want to cover a discolored or badly shaped tooth.
- need to cover a dental implant.
Crowns may be fabricated from gold, metal-ceramic, or porcelain. Our goal is to create a crown that looks natural and fits comfortably in your mouth. To decide on the material for your crown, we will consider the tooth location, the position of the gum tissue, the amount of tooth that shows when you smile, the color or shade of the tooth, and your personal preferences.
