If a tooth is weakened from a large cavity, filling, fracture, or root canal, or if it is deeply discolored, you may be a candidate for a crown in order to restore that tooth’s function, strength, and appearance. A crown keeps the remaining tooth structure wedged together such that it won’t fracture, and seals it off from the oral environment such that it will no longer be susceptible to decay if cared for properly. Crowns are custom fit to your teeth, and blend in beautifully with the rest of your smile as they are designed to appear completely natural and match the color of your existing teeth, especially when done in the anterior region. When properly cared for, these restorations can last for years!
