A crown, also known as a “cap”, covers the entire top of the tooth, reinforcing the natural tooth structure and protecting it from fracture, wear and breakdown. The goal of a crown is to restore a damaged tooth to normal function. Your dental crown will also be specially matched to the natural shade of your smile and bite of your teeth so that it blends in for a natural-looking appearance and fit.
Reasons for crowns:
- Fractured or cracked tooth
- Failing large existing filling or multiple fillings on one tooth
- Tooth previously treated with a root canal
- Worn teeth
- Cosmetic concerns
We work with a partner lab that exclusively uses high-quality materials. Porcelain crowns have a 94% survival rate at 8 years according to research published in The Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry.
