A dental crown is a tooth-shaped crown that goes over your tooth. Dental crowns help improve the appearance of the tooth as well as restore the shape, size, and strengthen of the tooth. Dr. Adam Brown and his team will assess whether a dental crown is necessary.
“How long will my crown last?” Depending on the material used to make the crown and the dental care of a person, a crown can have a varying lifespan.
When is a Dental Crown Needed?
At Adam Brown, DDS, we may recommend a dental crown to protect a weak tooth in order to keep it from breaking or holding together parts of a cracked tooth. If your tooth is already broken or worn down, a dental crown can help restore your tooth or add support to hold a dental bridge in place. Other patients choose to get a dental crown for cosmetic reasons. There are different types of crowns available, and our dental experts will guide you to making the best choice.
