Dental crowns, or dental caps, are a type of restorative treatment recommended when your teeth have sustained damage or decay. A crown is designed to fit over the entire visible portion of the tooth in order to restore its original shape and size and protect it from further damage. Crowns may be made of several different materials, but the most popular type of dental crowns are made of porcelain due to the fact that it matches the appearance and durability of your original tooth.
Our skilled dentist may recommend a dental crown to:
- Restore a tooth after it has sustained damage due to injury or tooth decay
- Protect a tooth after a root canal treatment
- Anchor a dental bridge
- Cap and complete a dental implant
- Strengthen a tooth that is cracked, fractured or weakened
- Support a tooth with a large filling
- Improve a misshapen tooth
- Enhance the appearance of your teeth and smile
Dental crowns typically require two appointments to complete. During the first appointment, our dentist will take impressions and prepare your tooth to receive the crown. A temporary crown will be placed to protect your tooth while your final restoration is completed. At the second appointment, we will check the fit of the crown and bond it into place to fully restore the tooth.
