Dental crowns, also known as dental caps, are a versatile and custom-made restoration designed to address a range of dental issues so that you can regain your oral health and smile. Our dentists may recommend a dental crown to restore teeth which have sustained substantial damage or decay. By encasing the entire tooth, a dental crown helps restore the size, shape and strength of that tooth.

How Dental Crowns Can Improve Your Oral Health

Crowns may also be used to:

  • Safeguard a tooth post-root canal treatment.
  • Secure and attach a dental bridge, ensuring stability and functionality.
  • Conceal and complete a dental implant, providing a natural-looking replacement for missing teeth.
  • Enhance the aesthetics of your smile, as they can be customized to match the color and shape of your natural teeth.
  • Correct misshapen or discolored teeth, improving overall smile aesthetics.
  • Reinforce a tooth that is weakened or fractured, thereby preventing further damage.
  • Support a large filling when there is minimal natural tooth structure left.

While crowns may be made of many materials, including gold and porcelain fused to metal, porcelain crowns are highly favored due to their ability to mimic the natural color and appearance of your teeth. A porcelain crown is also very durable, offering a long-lasting solution for your smile.

Most crowns take two appointments at True Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry to complete. At the first appointment, our dentists will take impressions and prepare your tooth to receive the crown. At the second, the finished crown is bonded into place. A temporary crown may be placed between the two appointments to protect your tooth until the final crown is ready.
