Dental crowns or caps hide flawed, chipped, or severely discolored teeth. A dental crown is really a natural-looking shell that fits securely over a dental implant.
Crowns also provide strength to damaged teeth, making them more resistant to injury as well as lessening physical discomfort. But most importantly, dental crowns help create a beautiful smile!
Have you ever seen someone with a tooth that has a dark gray line near the gum? You may be looking at an old dental crown. Older crowns use a great deal of metal within them. Over time, the metal begins to show through the dental crown as light reflects off of it.
Today’s dental crowns are much different, thanks to new technology. They can be fabricated to reflect light like natural teeth. With our high-quality dental crowns, you’ll never see a gray line at the top of these dental crowns and you won’t need re-treatment after a root canal. Best of all, your teeth will remain strong. They’ll keep you smiling for another 10-20 years–the average lifetime of a dental crown.
