A dental crown, sometimes called a “cap” is a restoration that provides a completely new surface for the entire visible portion of the tooth. A dental crown can protect a fractured, infected, or otherwise severely damaged
When Are Dental Crowns Used?
Dental crowns are used in any situation where your tooth is severely damaged and either has or is likely to fail when chewing. Dental crowns allow teeth with a good dental root but a damaged visible portion of the tooth (confusingly also referred to as the “crown”) to remain functional. The most common situations where a crown is used are:
Teeth weakened by decay and/or the presence of large fillings
Broken or worn teeth that are in danger of exposing the nerve
After a root canal, a dental crown is used to seal the operated tooth
To improve the appearance of an unattractive tooth
To top a dental implant with a fully functional tooth.
No matter the reason for your dental crown, the result is both functional and highly aesthetic.
