Crowns are a tried and true method for fixing broken or worn down teeth. They come in a variety of materials — from metal to porcelain to composite plastic and glass. Whatever the material, a crown is a tooth-shaped cap placed over a damaged tooth to restore its shape and strength. They also improve the patient’s bite and oral aesthetics. Dr. Genevieve Dee offers a variety of crown materials, all of which can be placed in her San Mateo office. If you have a broken or damaged tooth, she’ll detail the best possible options for treatment and help you decide which is right for you.
