If your tooth has sustained severe damage or decay or if a dental filling is not a sufficient repair, we may recommend dental crowns in Gurnee, Illinois. Dental crowns are also known as dental caps and provide a variety of uses and benefits to a patient’s oral health. They are also custom-made to fit snugly over the visible portion of your tooth’s structure and comfortably suit your smile’s alignment. With the placement of a dental crown, your tooth’s shape, appearance and strength can be restored efficiently.

These multipurpose restorations can be used for the following:

  • Strengthen weekend or compromised teeth
  • Support large fillings
  • Anchor a dental bridge
  • Complete a dental implant
  • Repair significantly damaged or decayed teeth
  • Enhance the appearance of a tooth
  • And more!

For many patients, dental crowns are a suitable solution to their dental needs. And because dental crowns are most often a tooth-colored restoration, they can also improve the aesthetics of your tooth and overall smile. They can be made from gold or porcelain fused to metal, too. However, when you visit Northwestern Dental Group and have a consultation with our dentists, we will discuss the best dental material for your needs.
