What is a dental crown?
If you get a cavity, our dentists would remove the decay and place a simple dental filling. But sometimes the damage to a tooth is too severe to be fixed with a filling. In this case, our dentists would probably recommend a dental crown at our Pen Argyl dental office.
A dental crown is an extensive restoration that protects all of a tooth’s structure. When made from natural-looking materials, a crown can produce the appearance of a healthy, perfectly proportionate tooth structure.
]If you have multiple worn down or broken teeth, we can use a series of dental crowns to rebuild your smile. Dental crowns made from porcelain are beautiful and closely resemble natural tooth structure.
Dental porcelain is available in various shades of white, and it reflects light the way that teeth do. Since we customize your dental crown just for you, we make it in the exact dimensions needed to protect the tooth and match the rest of your smile.
Porcelain dental crowns are very durable and can last 10-15 years or longer. To get the most use out of your crown, you must brush and floss your teeth and keep up with dental exams and teeth cleanings at our Pen Argyl dental office.
If you have a decayed or broken tooth, a dental crown could help you. Please call us to schedule a dental appointment.
