Dental crowns help to strengthen and retain teeth that are suffering from tooth decay, extensive cavities, or extreme wear and tear from teeth grinding and other causes. This type of treatment is called a crown, because it sits atop your tooth in much the same way a crown would sit on a king’s head. A dental crown covers the top of your tooth, strengthens the integrity of the tooth’s overall structure, and provides a seal to keep any food or germs from getting into your tooth’s roots or gum tissue.
At OC Healthy Smiles, we specialize in non-metallic Lava Crowns, which are made of high-quality medical ceramics. Our non-metallic dental crowns are able to be matched to the color of your other teeth, and their strong ceramic materials ensures that your tooth will retain its full chewing and biting function for years to come.
