Two locations to serve you better.
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.
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.
Teeth that need to be extracted due to massive decay can be repaired using crowns. They may also be used to cover implants, prevent cracked teeth from degrading, and to attach bridges.
