A dental crown, often called a cap, serves various purposes in dental restoration. One of its primary uses is to restore extensively damaged or decayed teeth. Crafted to fit over the entire tooth starting from the gumline, a dental crown aims to reinstate the tooth’s original size and shape. These crowns can be made of different materials like gold, porcelain, or a combination of porcelain and metal. Porcelain crowns are particularly popular as they blend seamlessly with the natural color and appearance of your teeth. Our dentist will assist in determining the most suitable type of crown for your smile.
Your smile might benefit from a crown if a tooth’s damage or decay surpasses what a dental filling can effectively restore. Additionally, crowns serve a range of restorative and aesthetic purposes, including:
- Protecting a tooth post-root canal treatment
- Attaching a dental bridge securely
- Completing a dental implant
- Enhancing smile aesthetics
- Correcting the shape of a misshapen tooth
- Reinforcing a fractured or weakened tooth
- Supporting a large filling when minimal natural tooth structure remains
