Dental crowns overview.
Restorative dentistry in Gainesville offering dental crowns. For mild-to-moderate decay, composite fillings are usually adequate to restore a tooth to good functionality, but larger areas of decay require a different approach. In such cases, your Gainesville, Florida dentist at Smart Smile Dentistry will recommend a crown, which is a hard restoration that fully covers the portion of the tooth above the gumline. In addition to treating large cavities, dental crowns are used to restore teeth that are broken or worn, hold together teeth that are weakened by large fillings or deep fractures and secure dental bridges in place.
