A crown is a type of dental restoration designed to entirely encase the damaged tooth. The dental crown covers the tooth beginning at the gumline. Dental crowns look and feel just like natural teeth, and they can be used to restore a significantly decayed or damaged tooth. Your talented dentist, Dr. Sam Amirani, may recommend a dental crown in order to:

  • Protect a tooth and restore its structure and appearance following root canal therapy
  • Enhance the beauty of your smile
  • Anchor the artificial teeth of a dental bridge to the rest of your smile
  • Strengthen a weakened or fractured tooth
  • Support a tooth with a very large dental filling
  • Restore a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed
  • Improve the function and appearance of an irregularly shaped tooth

Our dental crowns in Wichita, Kansas are often created from tooth-colored materials, like porcelain, to ensure that the crown blends in naturally with your smile. Porcelain is also a very durable material, so you can rest assured that your porcelain dental crown will be a long-lasting, natural-looking addition to your smile! Furthermore, your dental crown is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically. Dr. Amirani and his dental team can typically place a custom dental crown in only two painless, pleasant visits to our dental office. When in place, the dental crown can improve your smile by restoring the tooth’s health, structure, function, and appearance.
