Dental Crowns 101

Posted .

A dental crown is a natural-looking restoration that can help you repair a damaged tooth. It replaces the tooth enamel and restores the tooth’s health and function. It can also benefit you and your smile in other ways. To tell you more about this restoration, our dentist, Dr. Nidal Obeid, is happy to share some facts about dental crowns.

-A dental crown can do many things, like protect a weak tooth, hold together parts of a cracked tooth, restore a broken tooth, repair a severely decayed or damaged tooth, improve the appearance of a tooth, support a tooth that has a large filling, and more.

-A dental crown can be used to help children’s smiles in certain situations, especially if the tooth in question is a permanent tooth.

-There are many different dental crown options available, like porcelain crowns, metal crowns, stainless steel crowns, and porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns. Each one serves its own purpose.

-Dental crowns are typically made in a dental lab, and they are customized for you.
