A dental crown, also known as a cap, is a versatile dental restoration that serves various purposes. Primarily, crowns are employed to repair extensively damaged or decayed teeth. Custom-crafted to fit snugly over the entire tooth, starting from the gumline, a dental crown restores the tooth’s original shape and size. Crowns can be fabricated from gold, porcelain or porcelain fused to metal. Porcelain crowns are particularly popular as they blend seamlessly with the natural color and appearance of your teeth. Our experienced dentists will guide you in choosing the most suitable dental crown for your unique smile.
If a tooth has suffered significant damage or decay beyond what a dental filling can restore, a crown can provide an effective solution. Additionally, crowns serve various other functional and aesthetic purposes, including:
- Safeguarding a tooth after root canal treatment
- Anchoring and connecting a dental bridge
- Completing a dental implant by covering the abutment
- Enhancing the beauty of your smile
- Improving the shape of a misshapen tooth
- Strengthening a fractured or weak tooth
- Providing support for a large filling when minimal natural tooth structure remains
To determine whether a dental crown is the ideal choice for your dental needs, we encourage you to reach out to us today. Our team is ready to assist you in achieving a healthy, functional and radiant smile.
