A dental crown, also known as a cap, plays multiple roles in dental repair. Its main function is to restore teeth that have suffered significant damage or decay. Designed to cover the entire tooth from the gumline, a dental crown aims to bring back the original size and shape of the tooth. These crowns come in various materials, such as gold, porcelain, or a mix of porcelain and metal. Porcelain crowns, in particular, are favored for their ability to seamlessly match the natural color and look of your teeth. Our dentist will help determine the best crown type to enhance your smile.
A crown could be the ideal solution for your smile if a tooth’s damage or decay goes beyond what a dental filling can effectively repair. Additionally, crowns fulfill various functions both in restoring dental health and enhancing aesthetics, such as:
- Safeguarding a tooth after undergoing root canal therapy
- Securing a dental bridge firmly in place
- Finalizing a dental implant procedure
- Improving the appearance of your smile
- Rectifying the form of a misaligned tooth
- Strengthening a cracked or weakened tooth.
- Providing support for a substantial filling when there’s limited natural tooth structure left.
