A crown is a permanent covering that fits over an original tooth that is either decayed, damaged or cracked. Crowns are made of a variety of different materials such as porcelain, gold, acrylic resin or a mix of these materials. Porcelain generally has the most natural appearance.
In addition to our traditional crown material, we are pleased to offer a variety of additional crown options to meet your needs. Compomer is an alternate dental material that combines the benefits of composite materials with glass ionomer cements. Compomer is a tooth colored material that is very aesthetically pleasing.
We also offer Cerec crowns which can be made in just a single visit. A Cerec crown is milled by a computer to fit your tooth precisely eliminating the need for a temporary crown and all while you wait.
