Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth - covering the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and/or to improve its appearance. When cemented into place, the crown fully encases the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. Crowns are often used to protect a weak, worn, cracked or broken tooth, to cover and support a tooth with a large filling, to hold a dental bridge in place, to cosmetically improve a misshapen or discolored tooth, or to cover a dental implant.
