Dental Crowns in Slidell, Louisiana

Dental Crowns

When a tooth becomes damaged or weakened due to dental trauma, decay, or root canal therapy, a dental crown is often recommended. Dental crowns serve a dual purpose; they strengthen the tooth, but also create a barrier to protect the tooth from infection.
