  • A crown is a tooth shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth to restore its strength, shape and size. When the crown is cemented into place it completely encases the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. This is a great option when the strength and life span of the tooth is compromised!

  • Over time your teeth accumulate what we call tartar. Tartar is hard calcified bacteria that clings to your teeth and can cause bad breath, decay (holes in your teeth) and gum disease. Tartar is extremely hard and can only be removed with a professional cleaning. So the answer is, if you want to keep your teeth for the rest of your life, you need to have them professionally cleaned! After all you only need to clean the teeth you want to keep!
