A dental crown can restore the durability, function, and appearance of your smile if you are experiencing decay, cracks, chips, or other types of damage to one or more of your teeth. At our practice in Cedar City, UT, we can design natural-looking dental crowns with zirconia and IPS e.max®, some of the strongest and most aesthetic materials on the market. Dr. Brian Tavoian partners with a trusted dental laboratory to create attractive restorations to fully restore your smile.
Candidacy for Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are also known as caps, since they are designed to fit over the top of a tooth to provide support and restore dental function. A dental crown can treat a variety of concerns, such as:
- Chips, cracks, and other types of fractures
- Severe decay and damage
- Worn teeth due to grinding
- Teeth weakened by a root canal procedure or other treatment
- Misshaped or disproportionate teeth
Brian can also use a crown to restore a single missing tooth with a dental implant. In some cases, crowns are also recommended for cosmetic concerns such as severe discoloration. During an initial consultation, Brian can perform a comprehensive oral examination and determine if a crown is the right treatment for you.
