A dental crown, or cap, is a restoration that can be used for a number of purposes. One of the most common uses of a dental crown is to restore a significantly damaged tooth or decayed tooth. The crown is custom made to fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gum line, in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. Dental crowns can be made of gold, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal; porcelain crowns are popular because they match your teeth' natural color and appearance. Our dentist will help you determine which type of dental crown is right for your smile.
Your smile may benefit from a crown if a tooth is damaged or decayed to the point that a dental filling will not provide a successful restoration. Crowns can also be used for several other restorative and aesthetic purposes. Crowns serve to:
Protect a tooth following root canal treatment
- Anchor and attach a dental bridge.
- Cover and complete a dental implant.
- Enhance the beauty of your smile.
- Improve a misshapen tooth.
- Strengthen a tooth that is fractured or weak.
- Support a large filling when little natural tooth structure remains.
