What are Dental Crowns?
- Posted on: Sep 20 2011
Dental crowns, also known as tooth crowns, are caps that can be placed over teeth to serve a variety of restorative and cosmetic functions. Teeth that have been severely weakened by decay or have required a large filling can be further protected with the use of a dental crown, as can teeth that are broken, chipped, cracked, or misshapen.
In addition to increased strength, the dental crowns offered by cosmetic dentist Lindsey Marshall can improve the appearance of your smile. We use all porcelain crowns at our office which can be shaped, sized, and colored to seamlessly match your adjacent teeth. In this way, your smile can be made both aesthetically and functionally superior.
Why Choose Porcelain Dental Crowns
All porcelain crowns are a relatively new advancement in dental restoration. The advantages of all porcelain crowns include :
- Free of heavy metals and mercury
- Will not develop dark streaks
- Aesthetically superior and provide an entirely natural look
We are committed to metal-free dentistry, and are pleased to offer all porcelain dental crowns due to their function, aesthetics, and increased safety.
