What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is a restoration that fully encapsulates a tooth or a dental implant and mimics the size, shape, and color of a natural tooth.
Crowns are necessary to lend strength to broken teeth, weakened cracked teeth with existing large fillings, and root canal treated teeth.
In addition, crowns can also be used to attach fixed bridges as a means of replacing missing teeth. A crown can be made of a variety of materials, including gold, all porcelain, and porcelain fused to metal.
At Paragon Dentistry, our material of preference is all porcelain because it achieves the perfect balance of strength and aesthetics.
