Crowns & Bridges

A crown is a dental restoration that covers or “caps” a tooth to restore it to its normal shape, size and function. Its purpose is to strengthen or improve the appearance of a tooth.

Dental Crowns

A crown can:

  • Restore a tooth when there isn’t enough tooth remaining to provide support for a large filling.
  • Attach a bridge to replace the missing teeth.
  • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing.
  • Restore a fractured tooth.
  • Cover a badly shaped or discolored tooth.
  • Cover a dental implant.

There are various types of crowns, ranging from full porcelain to full metal. In the process of making a crown, the material often is colored to blend in with your natural teeth.
