Crowns: A dental crown is a cap that is placed over a tooth in order to restore the strength, shape and size of the original tooth while improving its appearance.

A crown may be needed:

  1. To protect a weak tooth from breaking or cracking
  2. To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
  3. To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t a lot of tooth left
  4. To hold a dental bridge in place
  5. To cover misshapened or severely discolored teeth
  6. To cover a dental implant
