J. de Graffenried Dentistry offers dental crowns to strengthen significantly damaged or decayed teeth. A crown strengthens a damaged tooth and restores its shape, appearance, and function. Each crown is custom-made to fit perfectly and to match your existing teeth so that your smile is flawless.
Our dentists may recommend a crown if a tooth has too much damage or decay for a filling to successfully restore the tooth. Crowns are often used anchor and attach a dental bridge. A crown may also be used to cover and complete a dental implant and may be recommended to protect a tooth following root canal therapy, to strengthen a weak or fractured tooth, to improve a misshaped tooth, or to support a tooth with a large filling.
A crown fits over the entire tooth, starting from the gum line. Crowns can be made of gold, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal. Porcelain is the most popular choice for crowns because it can be shaded to match the color and appearance of your natural teeth.
