A dental crown is a carefully constructed cap that fits over a tooth in order to strengthen the tooth, restore its shape, and improve its appearance. A crown, which is sometimes referred to as a cap, is often used to restore a tooth that has suffered from decay or damage too extensive to be effectively repaired with a filling. Dental crowns can also be used as implant restorations to complete the look of your new replacement tooth.
Crowns are permanently attached to the tooth or implant and become fixed in place as a part of your smile. Often, crowns are used to restore a tooth that has undergone a root canal or to support a tooth that has a large filling. No matter the reason you are receiving a crown, our dentist will make certain that your crown matches the shape, structure, and size of your original teeth so it will blend in beautifully with your smile and provide a lasting, effective, comfortable restoration. A dental crown in Chicago, Illinois, can be made from a variety of materials, including gold or porcelain fused to metal. All-ceramic crowns are especially popular because of their natural-looking appearance. Whether you desire a crown for cosmetic corrections or as a functional means of repairing your teeth, Dr. Emilio Couret will work closely with you to determine a treatment plan that is best for you.
