Some people who have a weak or broken tooth may want to think about dental crowns as a solution to improve their smile and overall oral health. Available from St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville, a crown is really a cap or covering that is tooth-shaped. When it is in place, it covers the portion of the tooth that is above the gum line.
Crowns can be made of metals, resin, ceramic, porcelain, or a porcelain-fused-to-metal material. We will usually put in a temporary crown while a permanent crown is being created especially for your mouth in a dental laboratory.
Many North Waldorf, East Huntingtown, and South Laplata dentists use crowns when performing smile makeovers to cover patient’s discolored or poorly shaped teeth. Strong, natural-looking crowns are also used with dental implants.
