A dental crown can restore a tooth that is imperfect. Known as caps because they completely cover the each natural tooth, crowns provide strength, beauty, and protection to your smile. Dr. Throckmorton may recommend a dental crown for one or more of the following reasons:

  • To restore fractures, cracks, breaks, or unevenness in a tooth
  • To protect a tooth that has had a root canal
  • To complete a dental implant
  • To repair a tooth that has significant decay
  • To improve the beauty of your smile

Our crowns are designed to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth for a more aesthetically pleasing and functionally sound result. In many cases, your custom crowns will be created using porcelain, a tooth-colored material that closely mimics the properties of natural tooth structure. Placed in just two appointments at Ocean Atlantic Dental in Virginia Beach, crowns can give you the healthy and beautiful smile you deserve.
