Dentistry has come a long way over the past hundred years. Until relatively recently, having any dental treatment was an uncomfortable experience — forget advanced sedation, the fully-reclining dental chair wasn’t even introduced until 1958. However, perhaps no greater advances have been made in radiographic techniques and how we are able to look at your mouth. Sometimes we need to take a precise look at your oral structures, and a typical two-dimensional x-ray will not give us the whole picture. That’s why your dentist in Boston Kraft & Schrott Dental Associates uses advanced cone-beam scanning technology!

A dental crown is a tooth restoration that your dentist may recommend for either a restorative or cosmetic purpose. For example, if you have a cracked tooth a crown may be able to hold that tooth together and avoid the crack from becoming bigger.
Similarly, if a tooth fractures and part of it chips away that tooth may be saved and restored with a crown.
For cosmetic purposes, a crown could be the ideal solution if a tooth is misshaped or permanently discolored. For dental crowns in Boston, patients turn to the skilled dental professionals at Kraft & Schrott Dental Associates.
