Do you have tooth damage? Maybe you have a weak tooth that needs protection. Dental crowns can help restore the structural integrity of teeth. They act as caps that cover and protect teeth and can be used to address damaged, misshapen or discolored teeth. Dental crowns can also hold dental bridges in place or cover dental implants.
They are made of a porcelain ceramic material that blends in with natural teeth for a more aesthetically pleasing restoration. At Premier Dental care in Lancaster and Palmdale, CA, dental crowns are custom-fit to each patient for personalized and comfortable treatment.
