Do you have weak, damaged, discolored, or misshapen teeth? If so, these issues will only grow worse without proper treatment. Thankfully, we offer personalized dental crowns for beautiful and lasting results. Whether a single tooth is affected, or your smile needs extensive restoration, our dental crowns in Baltimore will restore your grin back to its full health.

It gets its name because the restoration literally “crowns” the tooth, strengthening and protecting it in the process. We use dental crowns for patients with damaged, weakened, or heavily decayed teeth. Plus, dental crowns are often necessary after root canal therapy, and they make beautiful restorations for dental implants.
Once one of our experts has decided that your smile could benefit from a dental crown, you’ll visit our office for your first appointment. We will prepare the affected area by removing a slight part of your enamel to accommodate your dental crown. Next, we will take special images and impressions of your smile. Using this information, a hi-tech dental lab will custom make your dental crown. During a short waiting period while your restoration is being fabricated, we’ll provide you with a temporary crown to maintain your smile’s function and appearance. Once it’s made, you’ll come back to our office for a second appointment, where your dentist in Baltimore will ensure that you’re happy with the final results before placing your permanent crown. All that’s left to do is to walk out of our office with a restored set of teeth.
Dental crowns are one of the most popular restorations we have to offer because of their many advantages, including:
