Crowns are essentially what you might guess–covers for your teeth. A crown may be necessary to restore a damaged, misshapen tooth or already broken tooth to its normal shape and size. When there isn’t enough natural tooth left, a crown may be necessary to cover and support a large filling. Crowns are also used to attach a bridge, protect weak teeth from breaking or undergoing any further damage, and to cover a dental implant. Regardless of why Dr. Kim might recommend a crown, you can be sure that a crown will restore oral function and restore your smile to its former glory. Dr. Kim uses zirconium crowns, which are more durable than other varieties, while still retaining the look of a natural tooth. In addition, Dr. Kim has partnered with local labs to ensure each crown is created with the highest quality and care.
