A crown is a dental cap that fully covers the surface of a damaged tooth. If you have significant breakage or decay, a crown can restore the size, shape, and function. It will also strengthen and reinforce the entire tooth structure. Get in touch with the Vanyo Dentistry team today to book a consultation.
The dental crown procedure is very routine and straightforward. There is nothing to fear! Dr. Stephen Vanyo restores tooth flaws with crowns regularly.

Modern dental crowns are very durable and long-lasting. With proper oral hygiene habits, you will enjoy your beautiful crown for many years. Twice daily brushing, flossing once a day, and regular dentist visits go a long way. If your restoration ever chips or loosens, contact Vanyo Dentistry. We can repair it or replace it with a new cap.
