441 Elizabeth Ave., Somerset, NJ 08873



crownWhen a tooth has a cavity or damage that requires changing its appearance, shape, size or strength, dentists use a dental crown, which looks like a regular tooth.
Crowns get cemented into place, completely covering the portion of the tooth above the gum. When a crown is properly created, no one can tell the difference between that and a real tooth. At Dental Care Somerset, we pride ourselves on creating crowns that appear and feel like a real tooth.

There are a few typical reasons people need crowns:

  • Protect crumbling or weak teeth from further damage
  • Repair teeth that have been worn down by excessive grinding
  • Replace damaged, old fillings when a new filling cannot be used
  • The visible portion of a dental implant
  • Support dental bridges that are replacing absent teeth
  • Replace misshapen or discolored teeth
