Dental Crowns for Radiant Smiles

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.

Comprehensive Protection with Dental Crowns

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. Dental 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


What makes dental crowns different from other types of crowns?

Dental crowns are distinct due to their ability to closely mimic the natural look of teeth. They are highly customizable in terms of color and translucency, making them ideal for front teeth restorations where aesthetics is crucial.

How are dental crowns created to match my natural teeth?

Dental crowns are crafted using advanced dental technology. Our dentists and team will take precise measurements and impressions of your teeth, and then a dental lab technician will create the crown to match the exact shade and contour of your natural teeth.

Are dental crowns durable enough for daily use?

Yes, dental crowns are durable and designed to withstand the pressures of daily use, including chewing and biting. With proper care, they can last many years, making them a reliable option for tooth restoration.

Can dental crowns stain like natural teeth?

Dental crowns are resistant to stains from coffee, tea, wine, and other common staining agents. However, it is still important to maintain good oral hygiene to keep them looking their best.

What are the advantages of dental crowns over metal crowns?

The main advantage is their natural appearance, as they blend seamlessly with your other teeth. They are also biocompatible, meaning they are less likely to cause allergic reactions or gum irritation compared to metal crowns.

How do I care for my dental crown after it is placed?

Caring for a dental crown involves regular brushing and flossing, just like natural teeth. Avoid chewing on hard objects like ice or using your teeth as tools to prevent damage.

Can dental crowns be used to fix severely damaged teeth?

Yes, dental crowns are an excellent option for restoring teeth that are severely damaged due to decay, fractures, or large fillings. They provide strength and protection while restoring the tooth’s appearance and function.

What should I do if my dental crown feels uncomfortable or loose?

If your crown feels uncomfortable or becomes loose, it is important to contact our dentists and team as soon as possible. They will assess the crown and make any adjustments.

Are there any alternatives to dental crowns for restoring teeth?

Alternatives include composite resin fillings, inlays, onlays, and other types of crowns such as metal or ceramic. The best option depends on the specific condition of your tooth and your aesthetic preferences. Our dentists and team can help you determine the most suitable treatment.
