What is Crown?

A dental crown, also known as a dental cap, is a restorative dental treatment used to cover or encase a damaged or weakened tooth.

At Legacy Dental Team, our dental crowns are custom-made to fit securely over the entire visible portion of the tooth, providing strength, protection, and aesthetic enhancement.

Crowns are typically recommended to restore teeth that have undergone significant decay, damage, or trauma, as well as to strengthen teeth following root canal therapy or to support dental bridges.

Made from durable materials such as porcelain, ceramic, or metal alloys, our crowns blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, restoring functionality and appearance.

Whether you need to repair a broken tooth, improve the appearance of a misshapen tooth, or protect a weakened tooth, our skilled team at Legacy Dental Team is here to provide you with personalized crown solutions tailored to your unique dental needs.

When Are Crowns Services Needed?

Crown services may be recommended in various situations to restore the strength, functionality, and appearance of your teeth.

At Legacy Dental Team, our skilled team may suggest crown services if you have extensive tooth decay that cannot be effectively restored with a filling.

Additionally, if a tooth is cracked, fractured, or otherwise damaged due to trauma or injury, a crown can help restore its structure and prevent further deterioration.

Following root canal therapy, a tooth may become weakened and require a crown to provide reinforcement and seal the treated tooth against bacteria and infection.

Crowns are also utilized for cosmetic enhancements, improving the appearance of teeth that are discolored, misshapen, or have other aesthetic concerns, creating a more uniform and attractive smile.

Moreover, crowns are often employed to anchor dental bridges, which replace missing teeth by bridging the gap between adjacent teeth, restoring both function and appearance.

By addressing these dental issues with crown services, we can help you achieve a healthy, functional, and beautiful smile that lasts for years to come.

If you believe you may benefit from crown services, don’t hesitate to schedule a consultation with us at Legacy Dental Team.

Our experienced team will assess your dental needs and recommend the most appropriate treatment options to restore and enhance your smile.
