What is a Dental Crown?
Your dentist may recommend treatment with a crown for a variety of reasons. A crown is a common dental treatment that helps restore the integrity of the tooth structure. It’s a great option when a tooth becomes fractured, cracked, broken, or presents significant decay. It can also improve the look of your smile using a cosmetic dental crown. See below some of the ways Dr. Hale can treat dental issues and concerns with a crown.
