Crowns are porcelain covers that are both functional and cosmetic. Dr. Adams may recommend a complete or partial crown for teeth that have decayed or been damaged to the point that they can no longer hold a filling. Crowns are also used to cover cracked, broken, discolored or misshapen teeth, or when a tooth is in danger of cracking down to the root.
Dr. Adams’ patients receive porcelain crowns that look very natural, don’t have a dark metal line and are perfectly shaped and color matched. Crowns fit snugly at the gum to protect what remains of the natural tooth, and they function just the same.
