Dental crowns, also known as a dental cap, is a restoration designed to restore the visible part of a significantly damaged or decayed tooth, but it can also serve multiple other purposes and take many different shapes. Like all restorations, your crown will be custom made to fit your smile and rest comfortable over the entire tooth, from the gumline up, recreating the original shape and size of your natural tooth. Though porcelain crowns are the most popular because they match the original natural appearance and color of your healthy teeth, crowns can also be made of porcelain fused to metal or gold. Our dentist will work with you to determine what style and color of crown is best for your smile.
There are many reasons your smile may benefit from a dental crown. If your tooth is damaged or decayed past the point where if can be restored with a dental filling, our dentist may suggest a dental crown. A crown can also be used in the following ways:
- Improve a misshapen tooth
- Aesthetically improve your smile
- Anchor and attach a dental bridge
- Cover and complete a dental implant
- Strengthen a fractured or weak tooth
- Protect a tooth after a root canal treatment
- Support a large dental filling when little of the natural tooth remains
