Dental Crowns

Dental Crown Treatment

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed on top of a tooth to restore its size, shape or strength or to improve its appearance. Crowns can be made out of metal, porcelain, resin or ceramic. Crowns are needed for many different reasons including:

  • To protect a weak tooth
  • To restore a worn-down, broken or cracked tooth
  • To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t sufficient tooth left
  • To secure a dental bridge
  • To cover a discolored or misshapened tooth
  • To cover a dental implant
