A dental crown restores a tooth with decay that cannot be patched by a filling or onlay. Crowns retain the ideal tooth anatomy by replicating the natural form. They are made of porcelain for the most life-like appearance, or they may be fused with metal if your case calls for a stronger crown.
Crowns are attached to your natural root structure so you preserve as much of your natural bite as possible. A well-made crown from Dr. Egger will let you enjoy all your favorite foods and will blend with your beautiful smile.
Crowns and bridges can be considered by restorative and cosmetic dentistry solutions because they restore the function of your mouth while aesthetically enhancing your smile. Dr. Egger may recommend a crown or bridge to:
- Restore your smile
- Recapture daily function
- Maintain the shape of your face
- Distribute your bite properly
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
While the cosmetic enhancements are certainly appreciated, dental crowns by our qualified dentist work very hard on your weakened tooth’s behalf. In addition to great function, you’ll just love the way crowns enhance your smile.
