A dental crown, also called a cap, can be used for a number of restorative purposes, but perhaps the most common use is restoring a tooth that has been damaged or decayed. A dental crown is designed to fit over the entire visible portion of the tooth to restore its original shape, size and appearance and protect it from any further damage. Gold, porcelain and porcelain fused to metal can be used to create dental crowns, but porcelain is a popular choice because the material most closely resembles the color and translucence of natural teeth. Our dentist will go over the material options with you and help you decide.
If your tooth is too damaged for a dental filling, our dentist may suggest that you receive a dental crown instead so that your oral function can be restored. Crowns can provide the following advantages:
- Protection for a tooth following a root canal treatment
- Anchoring for a dental bridge
- Covering for a dental implant
- Smile enhancement
- Improvement for a misshapen tooth
- Improved strength for a fractured or weak tooth
- Support for a large filling
