What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns are restorations used to completely cover damaged teeth. The crown is designed to encase the tooth to restore its function, health, and appearance. Each dental crown is custom made to match the shape, size, and look of your natural teeth. At Ridge View Smile Care, crowns are often created from tooth-colored materials, such as resin or porcelain, for a natural-looking effect. Dental crowns can also be created from gold or porcelain fused to metal for a durable restoration.
