What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are frequently used to restore broken or badly decayed teeth. Dental crowns fit over a tooth like a cap to protect it from further damage and restore it to its original shape. The goal of a dental crown in Mobile, Alabama is to look and function just like your natural tooth. Dental crowns fit snugly at the gumline and are custom made for each tooth.

 

What are the advantages of porcelain crowns?

At Musial Dental Center, we are proud to offer porcelain crowns to our patients. Porcelain crowns look beautiful and can be matched to the natural shade and sheen of your existing teeth. Porcelain crowns can also improve facial contours affected by damaged teeth and prevent shifting of natural teeth and undue stress on your bite. Dr. Valerie H. Musial, our committed dentist, may suggest a porcelain crown to:

 

  • Repair a moderately to severely damaged tooth
  • Hold a broken tooth together
  • Prevent a weak tooth from breaking
  • Anchor a dental bridge
  • Complete a dental implant
