Dental crowns, or dental caps, are versatile restorations. This treatment is typically recommended to restore teeth that have sustained significant damage or decay. Dental crowns are custom made to fit over the entire visible portion of the tooth. The crown restores the appearance and shape of the tooth and protects it from further damage. Our office uses only tooth-colored materials, such as ceramic, when providing your dental crowns in order to fully restore your beautiful smile. The tooth-colored ceramic material used for your crown looks and feels like your natural tooth enamel, producing a beautiful, long-term result.
In addition to restoring a damaged tooth, our dentist may recommend a dental crown to:
Crowns typically require two appointments to complete. During the first of these appointments, our team will take impressions and prepare the tooth. We will also carefully select the correct shade of white for your restoration. A temporary crown will be placed to protect your tooth until the final ceramic crown is completed. The final crown will be placed during the second appointment. After checking that it fits properly, our dentist will bond your new crown into place, and you can leave our office with a renewed smile.
