Irvine Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth, covering the tooth to restore and improve its shape, size, strength, function, and appearance. The dental crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. There are many reasons to diagnose a crown such as large tooth decay that will compromise the strength and longevity of the tooth if restored with fillings, a cracked tooth that needs to be protected circumferentially to avoid future fracture of the tooth, a large filling with recurrent decay or fracture lines destined to fail or fracture, to use as an abutment for a bridge, to protect a root canal treated tooth providing protection from fracture, to restore severely worn down teeth, to improve aesthetics and so on.

Thanks to the advances in Dentistry, when it comes to dental crowns, patients have many options to choose from. To learn more about many choices you have please refer to the pages covering Lava crowns, Empress crowns, Captek crowns etc.
