Crowns, or caps for teeth, look and function just like natural teeth. Dr. Rod Smythe may recommend a crown for a tooth with significant decay that a conventional restoration (filling) cannot correct. Without treatment, the tooth could break or crack down to the root. A crown covers the portion of a tooth above the gum line to restore function, comfort, and strength.How can I benefit from a porcelain crown?
The crown serves two important functions. First, it improves the appearance of teeth. Our all-porcelain and porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns are shaded to match existing teeth, so you can enjoy an all-white smile after your restoration is placed.
Second, a crown is the same size and shape as the natural tooth. As a result, it will keep your jaw and bite aligned, preventing potential complications like headaches, teeth grinding, and TMJ disorders. A crown will also make sure that your surrounding teeth don’t take on a greater share of your mouth’s workload, which can cause tooth wear, shifting, and pain.
Dr. Smythe uses high-quality, custom-designed crowns made from fine materials and trusted dental labs to ensure a long-lasting, natural-looking restoration that fits comfortably.
