A crown is cap that is put over a tooth for added strength or protection.  A crown is typically indicated due to tooth fracture, prevention of tooth fracture, large decay, severe wear, or root canal treatment.  We provide both tooth-colored and gold crowns.

During crown treatment, some tooth structure is removed to make room for the crown material.  An impression is then made for our dental lab technicians to fabricate a custom-made crown unique to your mouth.  While the lab is making your crown, we send you home with a temporary crown to protect the tooth.  When the crown is completed, we have you back to the office to try it in and make sure you are happy with how it looks and feels.
