When a tooth requires complete protection or a restoration is needed, dental crowns are used as coverings for teeth and implants. Dental crowns can be made of many materials and are fitted over a prepared tooth to protect the root and pulp. As part of our general dentistry treatments at Rolling Hills Dentistry, we provide beautiful dental crowns to repair or protect teeth that fit perfectly into a complete smile.
Dental crowns are commonly made from ceramics or porcelain to match the color of the existing teeth and provide a durable covering. Crowns are commonly used after a root canal, as part of a dental bridge, as a covering for dental implants and for damaged tooth repair. When designed and fitted properly, they will match the bite and alignment, making it almost impossible to detect a crown versus a natural tooth.
