If one of your teeth becomes damaged or badly decayed, Drs. Kang and Cho may recommend a dental crown in Fairless Hill, Pennsylvania, to return your tooth to its former glory. A dental crown is a custom-made covering that is placed over a tooth to restore its strength, shape, size, and appearance.

A dental crown may be recommended for your smile if you have a tooth that:

– Is weak or cracked
– Is broken
– Is severely worn
– Is misshaped
– Has a large filling without much tooth structure left

Our dentists will examine your tooth and take X-rays of the tooth’s root before placing a dental crown. Your tooth will then be numbed so that it can be prepared and shaped for the crown. An impression of the tooth is then made so that your crown can be custom made. A shade will also be selected that closely matches that of your natural teeth.

Once your dental crown is ready, our dentists will check the fit and color. If everything is as it should be, the new crown is permanently cemented into place.
