A CROWN IS A TYPE OF RESTORATION (or CAP) THAT MAY BE THE PERFECT SOLUTION FOR MANY DENTAL ISSUES.
A crown is a one piece, custom fabricated restoration shaped and colored to encase and protect the visible part of your tooth. It can be made from a variety of durable materials and can be used for cosmetic and many restorative dental issues.
At Advanced Aesthetics Dentistry, Dr. Oyangen uses ceramic crowns to help our patients achieve that “one of a kind” smile or to aid in the creation of a dental bridge. He can also use a crown (or cap) as the final step in the placement of an dental implant. If you have a broken tooth or a tooth with extensive decay, a crown may be placed to cover and help support that tooth so no further damage is done.
A Crown may be placed to:
- Strengthen a weak or broken tooth
- Anchor a dental bridge
- Reshape a tooth or cover discoloration
- Complete a dental implant
