Customized for You.

Dental crowns are fixed prosthetic restorations made to restore a damaged tooth to its original shape and size. They’re permanently cemented on teeth that have cracked, extensively decayed, or otherwise been damaged. Crowns are custom made to fit over each tooth. They can be made of a variety of different materials, including ceramics, porcelain-and-metal, gold, or resin.

Are Dental Crowns Right For You?

When significant damage due to decay or trauma a crown is a better option than a filling which will not be enough to sufficiently restore function. A dental crown is the most suitable option. A crown, sometimes referred to as a cap, fits over the entire tooth.
