Crowns at park chambers

A cosmetic and simple method to restore damaged teeth.

What are dental crowns?

Crowns are a type of dental restoration which, when bonded into place, fully cover the damaged portion of a tooth that lies above the gum line.

Crowns can be made out of porcelain, metal (a gold or other metal alloy), or a combination of both. We generally place all ceramic crowns as they are aesthetically superior and give the tooth a very natural appearance.

Why do teeth need dental crowns?

  • To restore a tooth to its original shape.
  • To strengthen a tooth.
  • To improve the cosmetic appearance of a tooth.

Since a dental crown that has been bonded into place essentially becomes the new outer surface for the tooth, it is easy to imagine how the placement of a crown can restore a tooth to its original shape. It's also easy to see how a dental crown can help to strengthen a tooth by way of being a hard outer shell that encases the tooth structure that lies within it. For both of these reasons, dental crowns are routinely made for teeth that have broken, worn excessively, or have had large portions destroyed by tooth decay.
