Crowns, also known as caps, are a durable way to cover and protect a tooth that has been cracked or damaged, or a tooth that is badly discolored and unable to be treated with conventional teeth whitening techniques. Crowns are designed to fit snugly over the existing tooth and to closely match the size, color, and texture of the surrounding teeth for a natural look.
In order to give his patients a range of dental treatment options, Dr. Levesque offers different kinds of crowns. While crowns have successfully been made for decades from porcelain fused to metal, our practice also offers all-ceramic crowns; many of our patients prefer the aesthetic appeal of this alternative.
In addition to improving the cosmetic appearance of your smile, a crown makes the tooth beneath it more resistant to both injury and disease. To find out if you would benefit from receiving one or more crowns, contact The Smile Shapers today.
