A crown is a dental restoration used to strengthen or improve the appearance of a tooth. This a restoration procedure that covers, or caps, a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size. A crown can be placed for a number of reasons such as support when there isn’t enough tooth remaining (large existing failing fillings), to restore a fractured tooth, to cover badly shaped or discolored teeth, and to restore a dental implant.
When the permanent crown is ready, Dr. Hammoud will remove the temporary crown and make any necessary adjustments required to fit your bite. When you are happy with the appearance, the crown will be cemented into place. And that’s it! A beautiful and strong smile thanks to a custom-made crown.
