Dental Crowns: What are they & why are they used?

A tooth-shaped cap – or dental crown – is a restorative measure used to cover damaged teeth. A crown fully encases the visible portion of the tooth, and provides needed strength as well.

While a crown may be used to attach to a bridge or cover a dental implant, it is also purposed to reestablish teeth that are discolored, misshapen, or decayed beyond the point of treatment.

In addition, the appearance, shape, and alignment of teeth are enhanced by the use of crowns, and the color of the crown can be matched to the color of natural teeth, creating a natural-looking smile for years to come.

Are you a candidate for a dental crown?

It's important to consult a dental professional to determine if a crown is the appropriate dental restoration for you, but here are a few questions to consider...

Are you experiencing:

  • Severely decayed teeth?
  • A chipped or broken tooth?
  • Discoloration (even after whitening treatments)?
  • A tooth requiring a root canal?
  • Pain in and around teeth?
  • Bad breath?
