Crowns are used to restore severely decayed or damaged teeth, or teeth that have been treated with a root canal procedure. It stabilizes and beautifies a smile, and gives longevity to the life of a tooth. A crown is basically a cap that covers the portion of a tooth above the gum line. It can be made from ceramic, which mimics the translucency of natural teeth, or metal, which is very strong.
To create your crown, Dr. Mashod will take an impression of your mouth which will be sent to our lab. The crown will be designed to fit in with the surrounding teeth, so it will both look and function like normal. When the crown is ready, you’ll return to our office where Dr. Mashod will permanently adhere the crown.
Over the past 29 years, Dr. Mashod has completed crown treatment for more than ten thousand patients in Jacksonville, FL! That’s hundreds of patients every year who now have a smile that is
