Dental Crown Procedure
Dr. Nicholas Dose uses dental crowns for restoring severely decayed or fractured teeth. First, he removes the damaged portion of the tooth. Then, a unique mold is taken and used to manufacture a crown out of gold or porcelain to fit the healthy tooth remains almost perfectly. The crown is then fixed into place with special cement.
Dental crowns help prevent the need for root canals and tooth extraction by reducing the risk of tooth fracture and tooth decay.
