A crown is a type of dental restoration that can restore a significantly damaged or decayed tooth to its original shape, size, and appearance. Dental crowns are designed to entirely cover the damaged tooth starting at the gum line. When in place, a dental crown can restore the health, function, and beauty of your smile. Our experienced dentist, Dr. Painter, may recommend a dental crown in order to:

  • Repair a significantly damaged or decayed tooth
  • Complete a dental implant
  • Anchor a dental bridge
  • Strengthen a fractured or weakened tooth
  • Support a large dental filling when little original tooth structure remains
  • Enhance the beauty of your smile
  • Improve the function and appearance of an irregularly shaped tooth

Dental crowns in Fort Wayne, Indiana are custom made to fit your bite comfortably and to aesthetically complement your smile. Crowns are often created from tooth-colored materials, such as porcelain, to ensure that they blend in with your natural teeth. In as few as two visits to Tooth Acres Dentistry, Dr. Painter can place your custom dental crown and restore your smile.
