A is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity or filling threatens the ongoing health of a tooth and are recommended for teeth that are root treated. Crowns are also often used to improve the appearance of teeth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement. The benefits, as described above, include long-term durability and evidence-based success as compared to other restorations or no treatment.
A newer and more affordable alternative to a conventional crown is the Rhondium™ One Visit Crown (OVC) – a revolutionary treatment that saves time for both patient and dentist. Parkwood Dental is an approved OVC provider. Talk to your dentist to assess your suitability for this treatment.
