Dental Crowns in Albuquerque, NM
Dental crowns are basically a 1mm covering that’s put over your existing tooth. Our general dentists can fit the crown over your tooth to enhance the appearance of your mouth to give you a brighter smile you can be proud of.

- 2Hold together the parts of a cracked tooth or to prevent additional breakage
- 3Hold a dental bridge in place
- 4Cover discolored or misshapen teeth
Our experienced general dentists will make you a recommendation for treatment and explain your options. We welcome your questions during this process.

Benefits of Porcelain Crowns
Although dental crowns can be made of gold composites or other metal material, porcelain has been a preferred material for many patients. Porcelain crowns are often desired because:
- 1They appear like a natural tooth, sometimes even better
- 2They are strong and can resist chipping
- 3They can resist staining easier than other types of crowns
- 4They strengthen the tooth beneath it
