Damaged teeth are embarrassing, but modern dentistry has state of the art technology to help you deal with this issue. Dr. Leslie Bonner offers his patients dental crowns at his Washington, DC, office to mask those unsightly teeth so you have a beautiful smile.
Crowns look like caps and are made of porcelain. Your Washington, DC, dentist takes an impression of your teeth and sends them to a lab where custom crowns are made just for you. In the meantime though, you're given a temporary crown.
During restorative procedures, such as root canals, a significant amount of natural tooth is removed. This leaves the tooth exposed to decay and susceptible to breakage, which is why a dental crown is placed over the tooth. The dental crown reinforces the tooth and allows it to withstand various degrees of pressure, meaning you can enjoy eating without the worry of ruining your tooth.
