Dental crowns, which are also known as dental caps, are natural-looking restorations placed on your tooth to improve the function and beauty of your smile. The dental crown entirely covers the tooth and can be used to strengthen the tooth, restore structure, and enhance your smile. Dr. Humphries, your experienced Columbia dentist, may recommend a dental crown in order to:
- Support a filling when little original tooth structure remains
- Complete a dental implant
- Follow up root canal therapy
- Protect against fracturing or restore an already fractured tooth
- Attach a bridge
Your dental crown will be created from aesthetic tooth-colored material, such as porcelain or composite resin, to achieve beautiful, natural results. To learn more about how a dental crown can improve your smile, call us at Tony L. Humphries DMD PA today. Our friendly, highly trained staff looks forward to hearing from you!
