Understanding the Purpose of Dental Crowns
Dental crowns are used to restore teeth that, while damaged, can function properly as long as their external surfaces are replaced. Made of tooth-colored porcelain or composite materials, dental crowns cover and protect cracked, chipped, broken, and badly discolored teeth. Dental crowns restore the shape, size, color, and functionality of teeth. The straightforward, durable and attractive solution serves as a noninvasive placement process for crowns and bridges. The process can be completed in a short time, making these options a convenient choice for many patients at County Dental in Yorktown Heights, NY.
Dental crowns can also be used to repair a tooth after root canal therapy or to anchor dental bridges. Dental crowns and bridges are durable and attractive solutions for missing or badly damaged teeth. County Dental at Yorktown Heights dentists typically place dental crowns in two visits.
