Two locations to serve you better.

teeth

Root canals while helpful can weaken teeth. Restore your tooth's functionality and appearance by having us insert a crown. Crowns are made of a porcelain-like material and synthetic in nature and will be placed on top of your tooth.

Make sure you floss the area around the crown to discourage the collection of plaque. Clenching your jaw, grinding your teeth, and brittle food can weaken the grip of your crown. If you take proper care of your crown, it could last as long as 8 years or more.

How to take care of your crowns

In most cases, we'll reduce the size of your tooth to house the crown. The crown is then customized after taking an impression of the existing tooth. While the permanent crown is prepared, we'll fit a temporary one for you. Once complete, the permanent crown is cemented in place.

Crowns can be useful in the most severe cases
