A crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth’s surface, restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. A crown may become necessary or desired, for one or more of the following reasons:

  • Broken/Fractured Teeth

  • Cosmetic Enhancement

  • Decayed Teeth

  • Fractured Fillings

  • Large Fillings

  • Root Canal

Crowns are durable and strong. They are expected to last many years but as with most dental restorations, a crown may eventually need replacement. Crowns are made and customized in size, shape and color to match your natural teeth. This is done to restore full functionality to your teeth and to provide optimal cosmetic results for your smile.
