We welcome you to contact our dental office today to learn more about dental crowns and to schedule a visit with Dr. Thomas L. DeRienzo.
A dental crown, or cap, is a restoration that can be used for a number of purposes. One of the most common uses of a dental crown is to restore a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed. The crown is custom made to fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gum line, in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. Dental crowns can be made of gold, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal; porcelain crowns are popular because they match the natural color and appearance of your teeth. Our DMD will help you determine which type of dental crown is right for your smile.
