At Dr. Miles Guyton’ Practice, we offer dental crown restorations for patients who have teeth that need more protection and reinforcement than a filling can provide. Think of a dental crown as a way to protect a badly damaged tooth, a kind of armor for weakened enamel.
The Purpose of Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are most often used to restore strength and functionality to a compromised tooth. They are frequently placed on teeth that have been treated with a root canal, or on dental implants. In the dental bridge procedure, crowns are used to anchor a false tooth to the teeth on either side of a missing tooth. A crown may also be used for cosmetic reasons to hide flaws like chips, cracks, or discoloration. Our dental crown professionals perform a lot of crown restoration work, helping patients with worn or outdated crowns improve their appearance and function.
No matter what the reason, dental crowns are a great way to improve self-confidence and help patients become proud to show off their smiles. With advanced, lifelike dental crown materials, we are able to ensure your dental crown is indistinguishable from other teeth.
