To get a better understanding of what a dental crown is and how it can restore your smile, you must first understand the parts of a tooth:
- The basics of a tooth are divided into two parts: the root and the crown.
- The root is protected by healthy teeth and gums below the gum line.
- The visible portion of your teeth are known as crowns.
So, when the visible portion of your tooth becomes damaged, your Lancaster Family Smiles may recommend that you receive a dental crown in Lancaster. Let’s explore more about dental crowns and how they can help you.

After performing your semi-annual preventive checkup, did Dr. Mahima Gupta recommend you receive a dental crown in Lancaster? If so, it is not uncommon to be a bit confused. Many people tend to believe that they are only required with the root canal procedure. While they are used with root canals, dental crowns can be needed for several other reasons. They are quite versatile as they can restore the health of a tooth while also protecting it from damage. In some cases, they are even used for cosmetic procedures. As your family dentist, Dr. Gupta will provide the high-quality dental crown you need.

Are you finally ready to get the straight smile you have always wanted? That is great! To start your journey to a beautiful smile, it is important to understand all your options. While you could choose traditional metal braces, which are effective, you could choose the most preferred orthodontic treatment. Invisalign has quickly become the top choice for orthodontics because it offers a nearly invisible treatment.

Unfortunately, these preventable or unnecessary dental visits to the emergency room are a drain on everyone’s resources. The problem could often be solved more quickly and effectively at your dentist’s office.
