A dental crown is one of the most useful and versatile tools our dentist can use to improve the function, health and appearance of your smile. A crown is sometimes called a cap and can be made out of stainless steel, which is often used for children. Other types of material include ceramic, porcelain, zirconia, gold or porcelain that has been fused to metal. The crown is made to fit over your entire tooth, with a small amount of tooth enamel removed before the crown is cemented to the dentin.
You may be surprised at how useful a dental crown can be when it comes to solving problems with your smile. Our dentist can use a crown to:
- Support a tooth with a large filling and very little tooth material
- Cover and protect a tooth with a large fracture
- Improve the color of your tooth and smile
- Complete your dental implant
- Hold a dental bridge in place
- Protect a tooth that has had a root canal
Although the crown covers your entire tooth, it is still vulnerable to tooth decay at the base, and you should continue to brush and floss your teeth. If you have been struggling with your smile and would like to find out if a crown could help you, call our team for your appointment.
