Dental Crown In Aurora, IL
We offer a variety of cosmetic and restorative procedures to improve the appearance and functionality of your teeth. One of the most popular treatments is dental crowns. This dental treatment is considered cosmetic, and restorative and, in most cases, will be at least partially covered by dental insurance.
When would you need a dental crown?
There are several reasons why your dentist may recommend a dental crown, including:
- The tooth requires a very large filling
- The tooth has been treated with root canal therapy
- Combination of the above
- You have cosmetic concerns about the tooth (discoloration, size, shape, etc)
