A crown is a dental restoration which covers a tooth or dental implant. It is placed when a tooth is broken, has extensive decay or has had a root canal. A crown helps strengthen and restore a weak or damaged tooth.
There are different materials that can be used to make a crown, like metals, ceramic, and porcelain. Here at North Boulder Dental Group, we specialize in placement of porcelain crowns. Porcelain crowns help the tooth blend in better with your existing teeth and are a great option for people with metal allergies. Porcelain crowns wear the same as natural teeth and feel natural in your mouth.
