Dental Crowns at Streitz Dental
A dental crown is a thin cover used to surround and strengthen a tooth that is severely broken down or has a large filling. They are used to restore teeth to their original shape, function, and color. Other indications for crowns are for root canal treated teeth, cosmetic enhancement, fractured teeth, and badly decayed teeth.
In our office, Drs. Streitz will always give you the choice of what type of crown you would like. The most common types are porcelain fused to metal, all porcelain, and gold (Yes, we still use gold! It is arguably the best material available to restore back teeth).
