Dental Crowns

Dental CrownA dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth - covering the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance.  Permanent crowns can be made from porcelain, ceramic, or a metal alloy such as gold alloy.

A crown may be used in the following situations:  
  • To cover and support a tooth with a large filling or root canal where there isn't a lot of tooth left.
  • To protect a weak tooth from breaking, or hold parts of a cracked tooth together.
  • To hold a dental bridge in place. 
  • To cover a dental implant.
