As you age, your teeth may weaken from the foods you commonly eat or from the poor dental habits taken over time. Crowns are a way to help restore your teeth’s strength and shape if they develop decay and/or cracks. It is similar to bonding except crowns are used in deeper cases of decay or cracks.
Crowns are typically made from porcelain to naturally blend in and match your teeth, but they also come in metal or gold.
The installation of the crown will take approximately 2-3 visits.
Crowns are made to last 10-15 years if cared for properly. It is still important to continue to brush and floss daily. Give us a call to learn more.
