Crowns, or what are sometimes called caps, are used to cover the entire surface of a tooth that can no longer be fixed by fillings, veneers, or other types of customized restorations. Crowns are used in these situations because it ensures the protection of the tooth when it encases the open part, also restoring it to its original shape and size. The most common type of crown is the porcelain crown due to its color that makes the restoration blend in and less visible. All types of crowns, regardless of kind and price, are never permanent and will one day have to be redone. However, here at Smiles on Madison, we ensure you that the services we offer are top-notch and that your restorations will last as long as they possibly can.
