Dental Crowns

What is a Crown?

Crowns are a type of dental restoration which, when cemented into place, fully cup over the portion of a tooth which lies at and above the gum line. In comparison, fillings are dental restorations that are used to fill in or cover over just a portion of a tooth. Since dental crowns encase the entire visible aspect of a tooth, a dental crown in effect becomes the tooth’s new outer surface.

Crowns can be made out of porcelain (or some other ceramic material), gold (or metal alloys), or a combination of both. Dental crowns are often referred to as “dental caps” or “tooth caps”.

Why Is a Dental Crown Needed?

You may need a dental crown to address the following:

-Protection: Protecting a weak tooth that may have been weakened due to decay.
-Restoration: Restoring a broken tooth or a tooth that has been worn down
-Covering: Supporting and covering a tooth with a significant fillinge where there may not be much tooth remaining
-Cosmetic: Covering mishapen or extremly discolored teeth
-Implants: In some cases an implant may need additional coverage
