Dental Crowns In Jacksonville, FL
A dental crown, or cap, is a restoration that can be used for several purposes. One of the most common uses of a dental crown is to restore a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed. The crown is custom made to fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gum line, in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. Dental crowns can be made of gold, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal; porcelain crowns are popular because they match the natural color and appearance of your teeth. Dr. West will help you determine which type of dental crown is right for your smile.
Dental crowns can last anywhere from 5 to 15 to 20+ years. It depends on how well they’re cared for. With natural teeth and restorations, it’s important to maintain a strong oral hygiene routine by brushing twice a day and flossing at least once a day. We also recommend visiting West Dentistry every six months to ensure that your oral health and your restorations are in tip-top shape. The better you take care of them, the longer your crowns will last!
