A dental crown is a restoration that covers a tooth in order to strengthen it as well as restore it to its normal shape and size. Crowns may be placed by Dr. Michael Danner to support a large filling when there is little remaining tooth structure, attach a bridge, protect weak teeth from fracturing, or restore fractured teeth. At Danner Family Dentistry, we only use materials for crowns that will provide the longest-lasting benefits to our patients. We have several samples of the types of materials that are used that we can show you to help you to decide which material is best for your particular situation and preferences. Please contact our office at 309-346-2145 to learn more about dental crowns in Pekin, Illinois, and to schedule a visit with our dentist.
