A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface, restoring it to its original shape and size. Used to strengthen, restore, or improve the appearance of your natural tooth, a crown is placed over a carefully prepared tooth structure.
Crowns are an important part of many dental procedures, such as a fixed porcelain bridge, dental implants, and after a root canal treatment. Porcelain crowns can also be used to cosmetically restore your smile. If your teeth are too short, have gaps, fractures, large old fillings or serious decay, porcelain crowns can be a wonderful option to restore your smile in just a few visits!
Reasons for crowns:
- Broken, fractured or decayed teeth
- Cosmetic enhancement
- Fractured fillings
- Large fillings
- Root canal
Types of Crowns:
- Porcelain Fused-to-Metal Crowns
- Full Ceramic Crowns
- Full Gold Crowns
- Partial Coverage gold or ceramic crowns
