We Have Been Crowned

We Have Been Crowned

Thank you so much for letting me take the picture after my mom and I received our crowns. It’s so ironic that we both had a tooth that broke and each needed a crown within a week of each other! We appreciate the top quality care we received and the friendliness of your entire office staff. We have been crowned! Thanks for giving us miles of smiles!A crown for those of you who are not sure is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance.

The crowns are normally made of porcelain. Once the crown is cemented into place, it fully encases the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

There are several reasons for needing a crown. The most common one is a cracked or broken tooth. Once the crown is placed over the tooth it will seal it and protect it from further damage. Another reason would be to cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of tooth left. A crown is sometimes needed to hold a dental bridge in place.
