Crowns are a cosmetic restoration used to strengthen a tooth or improve its shape. Crowns are most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or partially destroyed by tooth decay. Crowns are needed when there is insufficient tooth structure remaining to hold a filling
Crowns are "cemented" onto an existing tooth and fully cover the portion of your tooth above the gum line. In effect, the crown becomes your tooth's new outer surface. Dr. Klocko uses crowns made of tooth colored dental restorative material that contains no metal. They are beautiful and have a very natural appearance.
. Your crown is created in a lab from your unique tooth impression which allows our talened and artistic dental laboratory technicians to examine all aspects of your bite and jaw movements. Your crown is then sculpted just for you so that your bite and jaw movements function normally when the crown is placed.
