Why do I need a crown instead of a filling?

Our dental crowns in Albuquerque, NM are beautiful and practical! Additionally, a dental crown can help a weak tooth remain strong and functional.

Generally, when you have a cavity, we provide a dental filling. However, if a tooth is deeply decayed or if it requires a complex root canal, a dental filling may not be strong enough to keep the tooth healthy and useful. A weak tooth can break and cause further oral health issues, too.

We rely on CEREC technology in Northeast Heights, NM. This means we create natural-looking crowns fast right here in our dental office. These crowns, made of quality ceramic, can often be completed in a single day.

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cover that goes over a weak or unsightly tooth to keep it strong. Our dental crowns are always colored to match your smile, and no one will know you even have a dental crown!
