While dental fillings can provide an excellent way to repair a decayed or damaged tooth, they don’t always provide the right solution for rebuilding a strong, functional one. When too much tooth structure is compromised by dental decay, trauma, root canals, or habitual clenching and grinding, a filling just won’t do.  In these situations, a dental crown, more commonly referred to as a cap, provides a better way to restore the involved tooth's integrity, function, and appearance.

A crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" which is used to entirely cover a damaged tooth.  Aside from restoring the tooth's shape and size, a crown provides strength and improves the tooth's appearance.  Additionally, crowns are used on top of a dental implant to add function, structure and a tooth-like shape.

There are several different materials used in crowns:

  • porcelain

  • ceramic

  • zirconia

  • metal

  • composite resin

  • a combination of materials

When selecting the material for your crown, your dentist will consider factors such as:

  • your tooth’s location

  • how much of the tooth will show when you smile

  • position of your gum tissue

  • function of the tooth that needs the crown

  • how much natural tooth is remaining

  • color of the surrounding teeth

A dental crown is a full-coverage restoration that replicates the form and function of a natural tooth. It’s often recommended in the following the situations:

  • To repair and rebuild a tooth with extensive structural damage due to decay or trauma

  • To replace a large or broken filling

  • To restore a dental implant

  • To provide full coverage for the abutment teeth, serving as the supporting ends of a traditional dental bridge

  • To strengthen and protect a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy

  • To improve the look of an undersized, slightly misaligned, darkly stained, or misshapen tooth

  • To address bite discrepancies

  • What is a dental emergency?
    Toothaches: Pain is your body's way of signaling that something is not quite right and though there are many reasons for oral pain, one of the most common complaints and reasons for seeking urgent dental care is a toothache. Whether you simply need a dental filling, a crown, or require a root canal procedure to save your tooth, we'll alleviate your discomfort and restore the look and function of the involved tooth. Dental Trauma: Dental trauma can result in a defect as minor as a small chip in tooth enamel to a more extensive and painful crack or fracture. With sufficient force, a tooth can even be displaced or completely knocked out of its socket. With prompt emergency care, many injured teeth can be restored and saved. Wisdom Teeth: The last teeth in your mouth to develop, wisdom teeth often do not have enough room to fully erupt or may be positioned in the wrong direction. These issues can affect your dental health as well as overall well-being. Our office provides skilled care to address the complications caused by problematic wisdom teeth. Broken or Lost Dental Appliances: A broken or lost dental prosthesis or restoration can cause embarrassing gaps in your smile as well as compromise your ability to eat and speak with ease. If you've lost or broken a dental filling, denture, crown, or other dental appliance, you can rely on our office to perform a prompt repair or provide a durable and cosmetically pleasing replacement as quickly as possible.
