RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY

Dental Crowns

At DHC, we understand the importance of undetectable dental work.   We want to make sure that your teeth are healthy, but also that you can maintain a fantastic smile after the work is done!   When tooth damage is extreme, we use Cerec® Dental Crowns to offer a long-lasting dental solution that looks like nothing was done!

BENEFITS OF A DENTAL CROWN?

  • Looks natural
  • Replaces missing teeth
  • Supports Broken or misshapen teeth
  • Improves bite/chewing
