Dental crowns are permanent restorations designed to fit over a decayed, damaged, or cracked tooth. If your smile needs one, a custom crown will be crafted to restore the function and aesthetics of your smile. This type of restoration entirely encloses the damaged tooth in order to restore the tooth to an optimal shape and size. Dental crowns can be composed of a variety of different materials, such porcelain and resin, and these materials yield a more natural color and look. Our dentist may recommend a dental crown in Independence, Missouri, to:

  • Strengthen a fractured or weakened tooth
  • Repair a tooth that has been damaged by decay
  • Cover and enhance the aesthetics of a dark, stained tooth
  • Complete a dental implant to restore a missing tooth
  • Protect a tooth following root canal therapy
  • Attach and anchor a dental bridge to fill gaps in your smile
  • Improve the look and function of an irregularly shaped tooth

When it’s finished, your crown can revitalize your smile’s health and the beauty of your teeth. Our experienced staff at Dr. Mark Jensen’s office is happy to answer your questions about dental crowns. Call us today to learn more and to schedule your next appointment!
