Dental Crowns in Spirit Lake, Iowa
If you’ve ever suffered from severe cavities, cracked or damaged teeth, or tooth sensitivity, you understand it’s not a pleasant experience. Our team is dedicated to helping our patients avoid oral pain and maintain a healthy smile that boosts confidence. One of the most effective ways to strengthen damaged teeth is with a dental crown, commonly referred to as a “cap.”
A dental crown is a fabricated cover for a tooth that has been damaged or had a root canal. Some types of damage include large decay, breaks or fractures, cracked tooth syndrome, and even clenching or grinding. The crown acts as a sort of shield to protect from further damage, reduce sensitivity, and strengthen overall tooth structure. Most crowns are made out of ceramic that matches the color of your surrounding teeth, but they can also be fabricated using gold or other metals.
