Crowns restore disfunctional teeth
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth. This cap covers the remains of the existing tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. Crowns are cemented into place and fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.
When will we choose for a dental crown?
- To protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
- To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
- To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of tooth left
- To hold a dental bridge in place
- To cover a dental implant
- To make a cosmetic modification
