Dental crowns (or caps) are custom restorations that completely encase existing teeth. For those who are missing teeth, crowns can also be used to complete a dental implant. Our dentists will usually place custom crowns to provide the most aesthetically-pleasing and functional results. When in place, crowns can:
- Restore teeth that are broken, decayed, or fractured
- Protect a tooth that has received root canal therapy
- Replace a large or fractured filling
- Enhance your smile
In most cases, crowns are placed in just two or three appointments at Red Oaks Dental in Poughkeepsie. They are created using accurate impressions of your teeth for the most comfortable and natural fit possible.
