Dental Crowns Lincolnshire
Tooth decay, chips, and fractures are often repaired by a dental filling. But when damage compromises a tooth’s structure and strength, a dental crown may be necessary to protect the tooth from breaking apart and/or falling out.

Dental crowns are the ideal restoration after a root canal treatment.  Crowns may also be indicated for a patient who has been grinding their teeth resulting in excessive wear.

Crowns are porcelain or metal caps made to fit over a tooth. As a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Sokol prefers to place porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns because they appear white and look natural. For back teeth, metal or white zirconia crowns are required. These materials are more durable than porcelain and can endure the crushing pressure of chewing.

If you need a dental crown in Lincolnshire, and you’d like to experience contemporary, customized patient care, it’s time to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Sokol at Village Green Dentistry. Our Lincolnshire dental office is conveniently located for patients who live in the Chicago North Shore suburbs of Lake Forest, Buffalo Grove, Vernon Hills, Libertyville, and surrounding areas.
