All about Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth shaped cap that is placed over a tooth.  This cap covers a tooth and restores a tooth’s shape, size, strength, and can even improve the appearance.

Most individuals need a dental crown to help a tooth in the following instances:

  • To protect a weak tooth that may break
  • To restore a severely worn tooth
  • To support a tooth that requires a large filling
  • To cover any teeth that are misshapen or severely discolored
  • To help hold a dental implant treatment in place
  • For dental aesthetics
