Dental crowns, also known as dental caps, are permanent coverings to fit over a decayed, damaged, or cracked tooth. A custom crown will be created to restore the function and beautiful look of your smile. Dr. Crews or Dr. Blackman may recommend a dental crown in order to place a dental bridge, to complete a dental implant, or to follow-up root canal therapy. Crowns can be formed from a variety of different materials, including porcelain and resin, for a natural color and look. Our doctors and our skilled dental team can create and place your custom crown in just two visits to Beach View Family Dental. When finished, your crown will revitalize your oral health and the beauty of your smile. Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to answer your questions about whether dental crowns are right for you.
