What are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are designed to replace and reinforce damaged teeth. They look like natural teeth and are made from resilient materials like ceramic, gold, silver, or composites. Patients can get full or partial crowns (inlays and onlays) based on the level of damage to their teeth.
Dental crowns require an intact root or an implant to stay in place. If the root is too damaged, our dentist will remove it. They will then place an implant on the site, and the crown over it. Once the crown is securely in place, it can last for anywhere between 5 and 15 years.
