A dental crown, also known as a cap, acts as a versatile solution for various dental issues. One of its primary functions is to fix a severely damaged or decayed tooth. This crown is custom-crafted to fit snugly over the entire tooth, starting from where it meets the gums. This procedure aims to restore the tooth’s original shape and size. Dental crowns can be fashioned from materials like gold, porcelain, or a combination of porcelain and metal. Among these, porcelain crowns are favored because they closely resemble the natural color and look of your teeth. Our dentists will guide you in selecting the most suitable type of dental crown to enhance your smile.
If your tooth is so damaged or decayed that a regular dental filling wouldn’t be effective, a crown could be the solution to consider. Crowns serve multiple purposes beyond restoration, including:
- Safeguarding a tooth after a root canal treatment
- Providing stability for a dental bridge
- Concealing and completing a dental implant
- Elevating your smile’s aesthetics
- Enhancing the appearance of a misshapen tooth
- Reinforcing a fractured or weak tooth
- Supporting a substantial filling when minimal natural tooth remains
