Damaged or broken teeth not only affect how you feel about your smile, but they can also lead to serious dental consequences like an infection, alignment issues and even tooth loss. Thankfully, one of the most popular ways to fix a damaged or broken tooth these days is a dental crown, also known as a cap. This restoration is custom made to fit over your entire tooth to restore its original size and protect it from further damage. Crowns are made from a variety of materials, including gold, metal and porcelain.
With a visit to Durango Laser Dentistry, our dentist will place a custom dental crown to restore your tooth to good health without compromising the aesthetics of your smile.
