Are you self-conscious about your smile? Do you have a bad tooth that destroys your smile? Do you want to be able to be at ease speaking to a group of people? We at Pleasant Valley Dentistry use crowns to fix a number of dental situations.

A crown can be described as a “tooth-shaped cap” placed over the entire tooth. It is made to match your existing tooth-color enhancing your smile. A crown is a custom-fitted covering that replaces your own natural crown on your tooth. They are cemented into place to make them permanent.

Crowns can be made from metals such as stainless steel, gold, or alloy. They can also be all ceramic or resin.

There are several reasons a person may require a crown. Crowns are used to repair a variety of dental problems:

– Restores a tooth to its original size and shape
– Covers a tooth with a large cavity and makes it stronger
– Restores good dental hygiene and improves your smile
– Corrects discoloration
– Anchors a bridge
– Prevents breakage
– Repairs breakage
– Covers a dental implant

As you can see there are many practical uses for crowns. If you have one of the above-mentioned problems, please give Pleasant Valley Dentistry a call at 623-561-1470 to set-up your personal consultation. We want to make your smile your “crowning glory.”
