Dental crowns are essentially caps that are placed over a, usually weakened or deteriorating, tooth in order to provide added strength or stability or to improve the overall appearance of a tooth. The crowns themselves sit overtop the tooth and cover the entire tooth. This helps provide the appearance of a seemingly normal tooth. Crowns may not last forever and may need to be replaced over a period of time. Dr. Schmitt and the team at Seaglass Dental Care are experts in the field of dental crowns in Palm Beach Gardens!
