Dental crowns are extremely strong restorations utilized for protecting teeth that are more significantly damaged by decay, trauma, or fracture. Also known as “caps,” crowns are designed to completely cover a tooth and fit precisely and intimately over your tooth in order to prevent leakage and to feel smooth and natural. Crowns are made either of metal, porcelain, or a combination of metal and porcelain. The appropriate type of crown depends on different factors, such as aesthetics and function. Crowns are also used as abutments in fixed bridgework or bridges. In addition, dental crowns are used to cover dental implants, to protect teeth after root canal therapy, and to strengthen teeth that are weakened.
Crowns are fabricated by a professional dental technician using precise measurements taken during your dental appointment with our friendly dentist, Dr. Todd Eder. Dr. Todd Eder has used the same quality professional dental laboratory right here in central Indiana for over a decade, Somer Dental Laboratory, located in Zionsville, Indiana.
