Protecting Your Teeth and Keeping You Smiling
A crown is a protective covering that restores and improves the tooth’s appearance while also shielding and strengthening it. Permanently fixed in place, your crown will last for many years.
Your dentist may prescribe a crown if you’ve had a very large filling or a root canal. A crown may also be used to hold a dental bridge in place or as a realistic replacement tooth with an implant. When teeth are misshapen or badly discolored, crowns (also known as caps) can make a big difference in improving your appearance. Today, with advanced materials and state-of-the-art techniques, crowns are custom-made to be both durable and lifelike.
When your dentist recommends a crown, he or she will discuss with you the option that best fit your needs. There are a variety of crown options to choose from including porcelain crowns and LavaTM crowns. The first step is to prepare the tooth and take impressions so that your crown can be crafted to match the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth. You most likely will have a temporary crown while your permanent crown is being made. Your new crown will be carefully bonded in place so that it is seamlessly aligned with your teeth.
