Advances in cosmetic and restorative dentistry make it easier than ever before to achieve the harmonious, healthy smile that you deserve. If your tooth structure becomes severely compromised by dental decay, a cracked filling, root canal therapy or traumatic injury, a dental crown may be needed to restore its natural size, shape and function. At Christopher T. Nichols, DDS, your San Francisco dentist uses state-of-the-art technology and techniques to provide high-quality restorations for your teeth.
A dental crown restores the functionality of a damaged tooth, strengthens and protects the underlying tooth structure, and greatly enhances the appearance of a damaged tooth. Your dentist will custom design your crown using impressions and diagnostic films of your teeth. Porcelain crowns capture and reflect light in a way that recreates the natural translucency of tooth enamel. Crowns can also be fabricated from porcelain fused to metal, stainless steel or ceramic materials when deemed appropriate for a particular restoration. Crowns are permanently cemented to the remaining, prepared tooth and can also be used to anchor a fixed dental bridge, or to complete a restoration based on a dental implant. In certain instances, crowns also offer a cosmetic solution for teeth that are discolored, misshapen or undersized. Dental crowns are easy to maintain. With routine brushing, flossing and regular visits to your San Francisco dentist, your crowns can last for many years to come. With dental crowns, your smile will look naturally bright and harmonious. You’ll find yourself eating, speaking and smiling with confidence.
