As a unique dental patient with your own level of familiarity with and understanding of dental terms and treatments, you may be well-aware of the uses of a dental crown, or this information may be brand new to you. Either way, Dr. James E. Gaff and our team want to talk about dental crowns and their uses to help you determine if this treatment might benefit your smile.

Essentially, dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps placed over teeth or a dental appliance to restore the size, shape, and color of a damaged or missing tooth, and they are a popular dental treatment for adults and children alike. Our dentist offers high-quality, custom-made dental crown for several treatments, and can provide a dental crown to aid in:

-Supporting a tooth with a large filling when there is not much tooth structure remaining
-Anchoring a dental bridge to your smile
-Restoring a worn-down or broken tooth to its original size and strength
-Covering a misshapen or discolored tooth to enhance its appearance
-Improving the overall look of your smile
-Completing the look and function of a dental implant
-Protecting a weakened tooth so it does not break

To learn more about the uses and benefits of a dental crown, contact Dr. James E. Gaff at 904-641-2655 today. We would be delighted to tell you more about this amazing treatment and, if needed, provide you with your own dental crown in Jacksonville, Florida!
