Dental Crowns

Benefits of Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cover placed over a tooth and secured with dental cement. Crowns are generally used to improve the strength or appearance of the tooth.

Crowns are used to protect broken, worn down teeth. They are also used to cover dental implants, a dental bridge or a tooth with a large filling.

Most crowns are made from metal and porcelain. Dr. Shay does full ceramic crowns which are both strong and look like natural teeth without any unsightly metal showing.
