Dental Crowns Boerne - Lifetime Dental
Sometimes a filling is not strong enough to restore a tooth or to prevent further damage to a tooth. When this is the case, a dental crown is recommended. There are many different types of crowns such as gold, porcelain fused to gold or all porcelain. We can explain which kind would be the best option for your particular needs.
The crown procedure involves reducing the thickness of the outer layer of the tooth then making an impression which is sent to a laboratory for crown fabrication. The crown is then permanently cemented, covering the tooth.
