A Crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant.
A crown is a cap placed over the entire tooth surface to restore its shape, size, strength and /or appearance. Crowns are used:
Porcelain crowns. Today’s technology creates crowns made of porcelain that are natural looking in shape and color, leave no black edge at the gum line and can last 20-30 years.
Metal crowns. Crowns made of gold, silver or porcelain over metal, the standard for crowns for many years, are still occasionally used.
Palm Springs Family & Cosmetic Dentistry strives to make crowns that look and feel like the real thing a natural and bright smile.
