Crowns are versatile restorations that can strengthen a weak tooth, support a bridge, or even cover a dental implant. If you have a damaged or missing tooth, then a dental crown may be right for you!
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers the problem tooth, effectively restoring the look and function of your smile.
Your crown can be made from one of several materials, including stainless steel, metal, porcelain, ceramic, and more! These materials vary in durability, as well as what will best suit your particular case.
You may need a dental crown if your tooth has become weakened due to decay or injury. A tooth that has been restored with a large filling, or with root canal treatment, can also benefit from a crown that will protect it from wearing down. This way, you can save a tooth from extraction.
Crowns can also be used for cosmetic purposes, for teeth that are discolored, misshapen, or even chipped. With proper care and good dental hygiene, crowns can last from five to fifteen years.
