A crown is one of the most popular ways to repair a broken, cracked, or worn tooth, or a tooth partially destroyed by decay. A crown gives the tooth strength, improves biting surfaces, and prevents future breakdown of the dentition. It also improves the contours or shape of a tooth, leading to optimal gingival and bone health. Crowns can be made of porcelain, metal, or both. Porcelain crowns are most often preferred because they mimic the translucency of natural teeth and are very strong.
The process of getting a crown at Plymouth Family Dentistry is easy! We will take an impression of your mouth, from which our lab will create a crown that will look and function just like the rest of your natural teeth. The crown will then be "cemented" onto the existing tooth, fully covering the portion of your tooth above the gum line. In effect, the crown becomes your tooth's new outer surface.
