Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a restoration that covers, or caps, a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size. Its purpose is to strengthen or improve the appearance of a tooth. A crown can be placed for a number of reasons, including:

  • A decayed or damaged tooth that needs to be restored to its normal shape and size
  • A cracked or broken tooth with large cavities or worn fillings
  • A poor-fitting crown
  • A tooth that has a large opening on its top surface after root canal surgery
  • A cosmetic tooth problem
  • A bite problem
  • To attach a bridge
  • To protect weak teeth from fracturing
  • To cover badly shaped or discolored teeth
  • To cover a dental implant.

Crowns can be metal, tooth-colored porcelain, or porcelain fused on top of metal.
