There are few restorative treatments more versatile than dental crowns. These small dental caps are designed to fit over the entire visible portion of the tooth, from the gumline to the crown, to restore the original size, shape and natural structure, and they are an especially common in the restoration of severely damaged teeth that cannot be repaired with a simple dental filling. Though dental crowns can be made of god or a porcelain fused with metal, the most popular crown material is porcelain, as it mimics the natural color and translucency of tooth enamel. Whatever the case, our dentist can hep you decide which material is right for your smile.

Common uses of dental crowns include:

  • Protecting a tooth after root canal treatment
  • Anchoring a dental bridge into place
  • Replacing a single tooth with a dental implant
  • Improving the size, shape or color of a tooth
  • Strengthening a fractured or weakened tooth
