Dentist in Braintree, MA - Allen Dental Associates, Craig Allen DMD, Lauren Handwerk DMD - Crown treatment information
Crowns are prescribed when a tooth or teeth are too badly decayed, broken or cracked to be easily restored with a filling. Crowns are normally needed for teeth that have had root canals. Crowns are also placed on dental implants to replace missing teeth. After the tooth is prepared for a crown, a digital impression is taken and sent to lab for fabrication. With new technology, crowns can be made entirely from high-strength ceramic and porcelain for beautiful cosmetic results.
With proper care, your new crown will increase your overall health and instill confidence for years to come.
