A dental crown, often called a cap, serves various purposes. It’s commonly used to restore a severely damaged or decayed tooth. The custom-made crown covers the entire tooth, restoring its original shape and size from the gumline. Dental crowns can be made from gold, porcelain, or porcelain fused to metal. Porcelain crowns are popular for their natural color and appearance. Your dentist will help you choose the right crown type for your smile.

Consider a crown for your smile if a tooth is too damaged or decayed for a dental filling to be effective. Crowns serve multiple purposes, including:

  • Safeguarding a tooth post-root canal treatment
  • Securing a dental bridge in place
  • Completing a dental implant
  • Enhancing your smile’s aesthetics
  • Improving the shape of a misshapen tooth
  • Reinforcing a fractured or weak tooth
  • Supporting a large filling when minimal natural tooth structure remains

To determine if a dental crown is suitable for you, feel free to reach out to us today!
