Dental Crowns An Overview
A dental crown is a tooth-colored “cap” that is placed over the entire portion of a damaged tooth. A dental crown is specially crafted to fit a patients’ unique needs.
Every smile is unique, so a dental crown can be shaped, sized, and color-matched to blend seamlessly with the natural smile. Typically, dental crowns are created using porcelain ceramic, which is a natural stain and decay-resistant material.
Dental crowns serve a variety of purposes in dentistry. Dental crowns may be used to:
- Stabilize a tooth after a root canal
- Address stained or discolored teeth
- Reshape a misshapen tooth
- Restore damaged or decayed teeth
- Restore missing teeth with the help of a dental implant
- Replace fractured or damaged fillings
