What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a restoration that serves many purposes. A crown is usually recommended to restore teeth that have become significantly damaged or decayed. Each crown is custom made and designed to perfectly fit your smile. The crown is placed over the damaged tooth to restore the natural appearance, shape and size of the tooth. Dental crowns can be made of gold, porcelain or porcelain fused to metal. Porcelain crowns are a popular choice, as our dentist can match porcelain to the natural color of your smile. During your consultation, we can help you determine which type of crown will work best for you.

Our dentist may recommend a dental crown if you have teeth that have become damaged enough that they cannot be repaired by a dental filling.

Crowns serve many purposes, including:

  • Completing a dental implant restoration by capping the implant
  • Keeping a dental bridge in place
  • Correcting misshapen teeth
  • Strengthening fractured or weak teeth
  • Securing a large filling that your tooth cannot support on its own
  • Improving the overall appearance of your smile and your confidence
