Elgin cosmetic dentistry offers multiple procedures for improving smiles. Two of the most popular procedures in the St Charles IL area are dental crowns and porcelain veneers.
Hello Elgin! Welcome to the David A. Rice, D.D.S. dental blog. Let’s talk about smile transformations. Some Elgin patients wonder if the term is synonymous with general cosmetic dentistry.
St Charles IL endodontists, oral surgeons, and general dentists use dental crowns (sometimes called caps) in many restorative treatments. A crown adds strength to a tooth that has a large filling or has been injured, a crown can correct bite misalignments, and a crown is usually necessary after a root canal. In a dental implant procedure, attaching the crown to the abutment is the final step.
