A crown (“cap”) is a tooth-like covering placed over a carefully prepared preexisting tooth. Ceramic Crowns serve many functions, such as to strengthen, restore or improve the appearance of your natural tooth. For example, a crown can support the tooth when there is no longer sufficient tooth structure left to place a filling. Ceramic Crowns may also be used to protect the structure of a tooth that is fractured or broken, and can be attached to bridges or dentures.
Highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth, sealants are a simple procedure in which a tooth-colored acrylic “coating” is painted onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively “seals” the deep grooves where decay is most likely to start.
