Dental crowns, also known as dental caps, are permanent coverings to fit over a decayed, damaged, or cracked tooth. A custom crown will be created to restore the function and beautiful look of your smile. Dr. Mauricio Martinez may recommend a dental crown in order to place a dental bridge, to complete a dental implant, or to follow-up root canal therapy. Crowns can be formed from a variety of different materials, including porcelain and resin, for a natural color and look. Dr. Mauricio Martinez and our skilled dental team can create and place your custom crown in just two visits to Gulf Coast Smiles. When finished, your crown will revitalize your oral health and the beauty of your smile. Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to answer your questions about whether dental crowns are right for you.
