Crowns are used to restore significantly decayed or damaged teeth. By completely encasing the affected tooth, a dental crown strengthens and protects the tooth. When you visit our Shreveport, Louisiana dental office, your experienced dentist may recommend a dental crown to:
- Follow up root canal therapy
- Complete a dental implant
- Protect a weakened or fractured tooth
- Restore a decayed tooth
- Support a dental bridge
- Improve the appearance of your smile
A dental crown can improve the function, health, and beauty of your smile. Crowns can be made from tooth-colored materials, such as porcelain, for a natural-looking, aesthetic effect. To learn more about how a dental crown can improve your smile, we invite you to contact us soon!
