Dental Crown Florence, SC

A dental crown is a versatile dental restoration used to address cosmetic and restorative dental concerns. The dental crown is a highly durable, permanent solution that looks and functions like a natural tooth. The dental crown fits over all sides of an existing tooth or can be secured in place using a dental implant.

A dental crown may be used to:

  • Repair a broken or damaged tooth
  • Whiten a discolored tooth
  • Stabilize a tooth after a root canal
  • Replace a missing tooth with an implant

A dental crown is custom designed to look like your natural tooth and is nearly indistinguishable from your real teeth. Fabricated from high-quality dental porcelain the dental crown reflects like like natural teeth. Your Palmetto Smiles dentist will consider the shape, size, and color of your smile in order to create the most lifelike dental crown possible.

Patients who receive a dental crown after a root canal or to repair a misshappen or damaged tooth will first have their tooth prepared. Some tooth structure will be removed to make space for the crown to fit over the tooth and to lay evenly with the neighboring teeth.
