A crown is a tooth-shaped cover placed over a tooth that is badly damaged or decayed, many call it a cap.
Crowns may be placed for several reasons. Usually the tooth has been broken, worn, or is severely damaged by decay. As a result, a filling can’t replace enough of the tooth or make the tooth strong enough. A crown may hold together parts of a cracked tooth. It also can be used to hold a bridge in place. Crowns can be used to improve appearance as well. They may be placed to cover misshapen or badly discolored teeth.
All of the crowns used at OC Smile are custom made to your individual needs and wants.
