WHAT IS A DENTAL CROWN?
A dental crown is an artificial tooth that replaces the visible portion of one’s natural tooth above the gum line. The tooth crown is what enables you to chew and is the portion displayed when smiling. Dr. Marcos Ortega recognizes the importance of providing the best functioning solution that also looks great. Therefore, he offers some of the finest dental crown options in the San Diego area.
