Dental Crowns to Repair Damaged and Decayed Teeth

Dental crowns are a restorative treatment used to repair tooth cracks, tooth decay, damaged teeth, and natural tooth wear and tear.  Dental crowns can help a patient restore their teeth back to their function and appearance. Crowns protect the affected tooth by covering the surface and preventing further damage. Modern crowns can be made with composite or porcelain materials.
