Why Our Crowns Last Longer
When you get a crown, the existing tooth will need any decayed or damaged structure removed.
Traditionally, the crown is designed based on what’s left of your tooth. However, many teeth are left weak and insufficient to support a crown long term. This causes crowns to wear down quickly and need frequent replacements.
At Kidder Dental, we don’t want you to experience short-lived results or waste money.
That’s why we place a core buildup on your tooth before designing and placing a crown.
A core buildup consists of durable, tooth-colored material that replacing essential missing tooth structure, so your tooth can support a crown for years to come.
