Dental Crown Alpharetta GA

Did you severely crack or chip your tooth? Are you looking for a natural-looking option with a dental crown?

As your trusted restorative dentist in Alpharetta, GA, Dr. Hedlund is happy to provide dental crowns to help restore your damaged teeth. A dental crown surrounds and protects a worn, chipped, or cracked tooth. Thus allowing patients to keep the foundational structure of their natural tooth. Custom made to fit over the entire tooth, the dental crown acts as a porcelain cap sitting on top of your tooth’s foundational structure.

The process begins by removing the infection or damage on your existing tooth. Then, we will reduce it down to just its foundational structure to make enough space in your mouth for the prosthetic tooth crown. Once fitted to the tooth, the dental crown will protect your natural tooth. Consider it a permanent stand-in for your normal chewing and speaking habits.
