Dr. Slaven uses crowns to help restore the strength and function of his patients smiles. Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a porcelain like material, which is placed on top of a tooth. At ActOn Dentistry, we use authentic dental materials to create natural looking crowns.
A dental crown can be used to restore strength, function, and aesthetics to a tooth that has severe decay, a failing filling, is at risk of fracture, or following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When tooth decay has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used.
Crowns are sometimes confused with veneers, but they are quite different. Veneers are generally applied only to relatively small areas.
Crowns can sometimes be tough decisions. We are here to make this a stress free decision for you . With our guidance and expertise, we hope you will feel comfortable in our care.
