Crowns are made from porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, metal, or resin and protect the exterior of your teeth. They are generally used as a cap on your back teeth, where you chew, to shield food from getting stuck in the crevices of your teeth. When placed on your tooth, they are strong enough to support a bridge or dental implant.
Crowns are a good cosmetic treatment as they not only strengthen your teeth but can be used to improve the look or size of your teeth. While there are many different types of crowns, each serves it own, unique purpose. Dr. Sachdev and his team will help you determine if a crown would be beneficial for your dental needs. We generally place a temporary crown on your tooth while the permanent one is being made in a dental lab to fully protect it.
