Crowns or caps are a restorative option that will cover the entire tooth to the gum line for additional strength, natural appearance, and proper function. Crowns can be made of porcelain, gold, and other materials, they will last many years.
If a tooth has been weakened by a large filling, has a fracture, or is cracked, a crown can protect the tooth from further damage. Crowns can function and look like natural teeth. They are designed to protect and strengthen your teeth.
A cracked or chipped tooth may require a dental crown to cover it. Also, a tooth that has had a root canal may need a crown due to the weakening of the tooth, which can make it easier to split or crack.
Dental crowns are one of the many options available to repair and restore your teeth. Different materials can be used to accommodate your individual situation. Pleas call our office if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment.
