If you have a tooth that is yellowed, cracked, stained, or chipped, a dental crown may provide you with the solution you need. A dental crown may also be recommended to:
- Cover a structurally compromised tooth
- Strengthen a weak tooth to prevent fracturing
- Anchor a dental bridge
- Restore a damaged or misshaped tooth
- Cover a dental implant
A dental crown, which is often known as a cap, is a restoration designed to return your smile to its optimal, functioning condition. If a dental crown is right for you, our dentist, Dr. Cory Williams, will fuse a cap to the problem tooth to improve its imperfections. Dental crowns are designed to cover the entirety of your tooth starting at the gum line. Your custom-made crown can be matched to the shape, color, and size of your natural teeth to give you the most aesthetically pleasing result possible. Dental crowns are designed to be a long-lasting solution. With proper dental care, a crown can last for more than fifteen years, and our team will gladly teach you how to care for your crowns. If you have any questions about how a dental crown in Wilmington, North Carolina, can improve your smile, please call us today. We are eager to hear from you!
