Crowns Are Easy to Put On

If dental crowns are a possible solution to the damage, they are easy to put on. Your dentist will look to see if they have your size, or they may have to make the crown or order it in. The tooth is filed and prepped, and then the crown is adhered on with a reliable bonding agent. The dentist will give you directions on eating and drinking when you leave the office so you don't interrupt the work that was done.

There Are Natural Color Options

The crowns aren't going to be shiny attention grabbing pieces in your mouth. Choose the white porcelain options that will match your natural white smile.
