Dental Crowns

What is a dental crown? A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth as a cover to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.


Permanent crowns can be made from various materials including;

  • Stainless steel

  • All metal (such as gold or another alloy)

  • Porcelain-fused-to-metal

  • All resin

  • All ceramic

Dental Crowns Can Be Used For

  • To protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay)

  • To hold a dental bridge in place

  • To cover misshaped or severely discolored teeth

  • To cover a dental implant

  • 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 make a cosmetic modification
