Dental crowns have been used in dentistry for over 2000 years. There is evidence that the Etruscans experimented with crowns on teeth using ivory and bone as early as 700 B.C. At The Fayetteville Dentist, our techniques and materials are all state-of-the-art!
Dental crowns (also called caps) cover the entire visible portion of the tooth and are cemented in place. They strengthen teeth that have been worn down or weakened by decay or injury.
Crowns are also used to restore the original shape of a tooth or solely to improve its appearance.
The most common types of crowns are:
- All-porcelain (ceramic)
Dental crowns are among the restorations used on a regular basis, at The Fayetteville Dentist. They’re among our complete general and cosmetic dentistry services. Call to schedule an appointment with us today. We’ve also got an office in Hope Mills!
