Dental Crowns (Caps)

WHY DO YOU NEED DENTAL CROWNS?
  • To repair broken or decayed teeth
  • Will protect a weak tooth
  • To replace a missing tooth (along with an implant)
  • Can correct a misshapen or unattractive tooth
  • If your tooth is cracked, it will not heal and continue to cause pain

Crowns, also known as caps, are used in restorative dentistry to protect or replace a single tooth that is unhealthy or unattractive. Crowns can be used to protect and cover concerns like broken teeth, discoloration, and major decay. A crown can be placed and cemented over the natural tooth or a crown can be attached to a dental implant to replace a missing tooth Crowns can be made from metal, a combination of metal and porcelain, or all porcelain. Porcelain crowns do not usually last as long as metal crowns, but they look more like natural teeth; so most patients prefer porcelain crowns on their visible teeth.
