At Palm Springs Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, when appropriate, we provide crowning procedures.
A “Crown” is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. As new technology and materials science has evolved, computers are increasingly becoming a part of crown and bridge fabrication, such as in CAD/CAM Dentistry.
When a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth it may be time for a crown. They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement. Crowns can be made from many materials, which are usually fabricated using indirect methods. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth.
