Do you have a tooth that is severely damaged? Has eating become less enjoyable because of a worn-down or broken molar? Do you clench or grind your teeth and worry that your restorations won’t hold up? Are you missing a tooth and wish there was an attractive and affordable way to replace it? Ask Dr. Joe Cochran about our durable and life-like dental crowns. Crowns, like porcelain veneers, are the premier choice for repairs, restorations, and cosmetic improvements.
Crowns—also called caps—are used to protect weak teeth, conceal and repair flaws, and hold cracked or crumbling teeth together, eliminating the need for extraction—even if you clench and grind. How? Dental crowns, unlike fillings, inlays, or onlays, cover the entire surface of your tooth, acting in a way, like brand new, undamaged tooth surfaces. Crowns can also replace missing teeth when used to anchor a bridge, and act as the new tooth on an implant.
