From routine cleanings and fillings to complex cosmetic dentistry,
North Dayton Family Dentistry is equipped to handle
all your dental needs.
Crowns are the restoration of choice when a filling will no longer suffice. Once a filling occupies 50% or more of the width of a tooth, a crown is indicated. Crowns surround the tooth bracing it together, whereas a large filling acts as a wedge, weakening the tooth. Teeth with large fillings are prone to breaking or splitting.
There are different types of crowns available and we utilize the crown that best fits your dental situation. We can fabricate crowns that are all porcelain with no underlying metal to avoid the unsightly black line you may have seen and to color match the crown to seamlessly blend with your smile.
