At Colden Dental Care, we partner with dental laboratories that share our commitment to excellence. This ensures a crown that is both functional and highly aesthetic.
A dental crown is also known as a “cap”. It is a shell that is placed over and around the entire tooth. Crowns prevent tooth fracture because they act as a ring around the tooth that binds the tooth together.
A crown will help strengthen a tooth that has previously been restored with a large filling. It may also be recommended to cover a tooth that is badly broken down or unaesthetic. A crown can be fabricated from different materials including porcelain, metal or a combination of both. The tooth is prepared to accommodate a crown. An impression is then taken and sent to the dental laboratory for fabrication of a customized crown. The crown is then cemented over the tooth and fits flush with the edge of the tooth.
