Dental Crowns


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 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 misshaped tooth; or to cover a dental implant.
