If you live in West Hartford, CT, and need to restore any teeth that have been damaged by decay or injury, the team of family dentists here at Comprehensive Dental Care office can help. If you need a filling or a root canal, a dental crown is put in place to cover and support the tooth. If your teeth have excessive wear-and-tear, an undesirable appearance, or have gone missing, a dental crown will repair, protect, and make them look natural.

What is a Dental Crown?

Also referred to as a cap, a dental crown is cemented onto existing teeth or implants to partially or completely cover the outside of a tooth. A dental crown can make your tooth stronger, without sacrificing your aesthetics or confidence. Furthermore, this durable option can last up to 15 years with proper maintenance and regular dental checkups. The procedure usually requires two visits and doesn't affect your daily routine.

How Does a Dental Crown Work?

Here at our office in West Hartford, CT, our family dentists may recommend a crown to:

  • Substitute a large filling
  • Prevent a weak tooth from breaking
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Cover a poorly shaped or discolored tooth
  • Rebuild a fractured tooth

The purpose of a dental crown is to restore a damaged tooth to its natural function. We make the process easy and comfortable as possible and provide you with compassion and assistance along the way.
