A crown is a cap that is shaped like a tooth that is placed over a damaged tooth. The crown is used to restore the look of the tooth to its original shape, size and strength. When a crown is cemented in place, it will cover the entire tooth. Crowns can be made from various materials such as stainless steel and other metals, ceramic and porcelain. Typically with our Centennial dentists crowns last five to eight years. If you have additional questions about crowns or believe that you may be in need of a crown, please contact us at Aspen Springs Dentistry to schedule an appointment.
