A dental crown is a cap or covering that fits over a tooth to restore it to its original shape and size. At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, we place a lot of dental crowns.
Crowns can be made of metals, resin, ceramic, porcelain, or a porcelain-fused-to-metal material. We usually put in a temporary crown while a permanent crown is being created especially for your mouth in a dental laboratory.
Dental crowns have been used successfully in dentistry for decades.
Dental crowns are useful in smile makeovers to cover patient’s discolored or poorly shaped teeth. Strong, natural-looking crowns are also used with dental implants.
Once they have been placed, a crown fully encases the part of a damated tooth that sits above the gum line. They fit over the tooth in much the same way a thimble fits over the tip of a thumb or finger. Once they are in place they can endure the constant pressure of daily chewing, just as well as the rest of your teeth.
At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati we place a lot of dental crowns. Other services include family dentistry. We serve the Loveland, Blue Ash, and Montgomery areas. Make an appointment with us today.
