For patients suffering from misaligned, cracked, or damaged teeth, porcelain crowns are an excellent option. Crowns are fitted over the tooth like a cap to repair these dental problems. The support provided by crowns can greatly reduce pain associated with damaged teeth and also prevent further damage to the area. Aesthetically, crowns can improve your smile because they prevent further decay, chipping, or other damage from occurring. Dr. Boyd uses only tooth-colored dental crowns that are virtually indistinguishable from the natural tooth.
