Dental Crowns

If your tooth has sustained damage, our dentists may recommend a dental crown to restore it to full health and function. Crowns, also known as dental caps, are highly versatile and can be used for a number of restorative and aesthetic purposes, such as:

  • Restoring a tooth that has experienced extensive damage or decay
  • Protecting a tooth after a root canal treatment
  • Anchoring and attaching a dental bridge
  • Covering and completing a dental implant
  • Improving the appearance of your teeth and smile
  • Improving a misshapen tooth
  • Strengthening a tooth that is fractured or otherwise weakened
  • Supporting a tooth with a large filling and little remaining natural tooth structure

Dental crowns may be made from a variety of materials, including gold, metal and porcelain. Porcelain crowns are especially popular, as porcelain mimics the appearance and feel of natural tooth enamel, producing a beautiful and long-lasting final result for your smile.

When you receive a dental crown, plan on two appointments to complete your treatment. At the first visit, our dentists will take impressions and prepare your tooth to receive the crown. A temporary crown may be placed to protect your tooth until your final crown is ready. At the second appointment, our dentists will check that your crown fits properly before bonding it permanently into place to restore your oral health, function and smile.
