Porcelain Crowns (Caps)

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth -- to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance.

The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

Why Is a Dental Crown Needed?

A dental crown may be needed in the following situations:

  • • To protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
  • • To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
  • • To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of tooth left
  • • To hold a dental bridge in place
  • • To cover misshapened or severely discolored teeth
  • • To cover a dental implant
  • • To make a cosmetic modification
