A dental crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface, restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot otherwise be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. A crown may become necessary or desired for one or more of the following reasons:
- Broken or fractured teeth
- Cosmetic enhancement
- Decayed teeth
- Fractured fillings
- Large fillings
- Root canal
There are several different kinds of crowns available for restoring your smile. The most popular type of crowns are porcelain crowns because they most closely resemble your natural teeth. Dental crowns are made to be durable, strong and long-lasting. However, like most dental restorations, a crown may eventually need replacement. Porcelain crowns are customized by size, shape and color to match your natural teeth. This is done to restore full functionality to your teeth and to provide optimal cosmetic results for your smile.
