Need dental crowns? One of the most revolutionary developments in dentistry, crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover the outside of the teeth to correct a variety of dental problems. The family dentists at Dr. Huguet & Associates, which is located in Pleasant Hill, CA, offers a complete range of dental services. Read on to find out what dental crowns can do for your smile!

Fix Your Smile Issues

Often used to restore badly decayed, broken, and damaged teeth, crowns can also be used to cover dental implants, attach dental bridges, and protect weakened teeth after treatments such as Root Canal Therapy.


Enhance Your Smile

In addition to the medical benefits, crowns can also give you a better-looking smile. Given that the porcelain variety is often considered the best looking of all the options, they're often used for the front teeth. Nothing gives the same luster, translucency, and depth like a porcelain crown!

Improve Oral Function

It's difficult to chew food when you have fractured teeth, however, crowns will give you the ability to enjoy good food all over again! By restoring the structure of your broken or damaged teeth, crowns allow you to eat in comfort and confidence. This ability is long lasting too, as crowns generally last between 10 and 15 years, with some even lasting a lifetime!

Whiten Your Teeth

Crowns can instantly correct tooth discoloration. If your tooth has darkened after a root canal or taking tetracycline, bleaching it won't help. In these cases, your family dentist may recommend covering the discolored teeth with dental crowns.
