Prevention is a critical element in any good oral health plan. But for many reasons, you may have a tooth that suffers damage to the extent that it requires your dentist in Ken Caryl to recommend a dental crown or bridge. A dental crown is a ceramic reproduction of an entire tooth that we can fix individually during root canal therapy, on top of a dental implant, or as part of a dental bridge.
Dentists have been using crowns for decades due to their natural appearance, durability, and fit. However, one drawback in the past to a conventional crown is that it had to be created in a specialized, outside lab. So to complete your crown, you had to sit for more than one visit, with an often ill-fitting temporary crown used in between.
