What are Dental Crowns?

According to the American College of Prosthodontists, a dental crown is a cap-shaped structure that sits over damaged natural teeth and restores their structure, function, and esthetics.

Of course, not every case allows for same day crown restorations, but when it does, we provide the expedited treatment for our patients. Patients love this because it saves them an additional trip to the office for the final crown placement.
