When a tooth is damaged too severely to be treated with a filling, a dental crown may be the best solution.
As the name suggests, dental crowns are like caps for a damaged tooth. They look and function just like a natural tooth. They are thicker and sturdier than veneers.
Porcelain crowns are placed right on top of the original tooth, and they look and function just like a natural tooth. In fact, they are often stronger than the original tooth.
Crowns are thicker and sturdier than veneers. Partial crowns are also available for certain circumstances.
Crowns do not need any special care. They should just be brushed and flossed every day like the rest of your teeth.
This process of placing a crown is simple and can help you regain your smile. For more information, call (708) 232-0403 to schedule an appointment.
