If your tooth has become significantly damaged or decayed, our caring dentist may recommend a crown. A dental crown is a type of restoration used to restore a tooth to its original shape, size, and appearance. Designed to entirely cover the damaged tooth beginning at the gum line, a dental crown can restore the health, beauty, and function of your smile. Dr. James Prigmore may recommend a dental crown in order to:

  • Restore a significantly damaged or decayed tooth
  • Protect a tooth following root canal therapy
  • Complete a dental implant
  • Improve the function and appearance of an irregularly shaped tooth
  • Anchor a dental bridge
  • Enhance the beauty of your smile
  • Strengthen a weakened or fractured tooth
  • Support a large dental filling when little original tooth structure remains

Crowns, which are also known as caps, are often created from tooth-colored materials, like porcelain or composite resin, to ensure that your smile looks beautiful and natural. Crowns in Fairfield, California usually require only two visits to our dental office. For more information on how a dental crown can improve the health of your smile, we invite you to call or visit us soon. We are eager to care for your smile!
