What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns are one of the most common dental restorations that people need and are frequently recommended because they are often the best option to extend the life of a tooth and can last for years if they are properly taken care of.

Dental crowns can be made of a variety of materials, but most often are made of porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or full gold. If you want a more natural look, porcelain is the best option, as it can be matched to the shade of your teeth and can blend in easily!
