Fanwood Family and Cosmetic Dentistry provides high-quality crowns that blend seamlessly with your natural smile. If you have a severely decayed or otherwise damaged tooth, a crown restoration may be the right treatment for you.

A dental crown is a custom-shaped cap made to surround the visible portion of a damaged tooth. Once snuggly in place, a tooth crown provides protection and improves strength, size, and aesthetic appeal. Since the restoration serves as replacement enamel, you can once again eat, smile, and speak with confidence. Coming to Fanwood Family and Cosmetic Dentistry for a dental crown in Fanwood, NJ means getting attractive, durable restorations that look and function just like your natural teeth.
