A dental crown, or cap, is a restoration that can be used for a number of purposes.
One of the most common uses of a dental crown is to restore a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed. If your tooth is damaged or decayed to the point that a dental filling will not provide a successful restoration a crown may be the best solution for you. Crowns are custom made to fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gum line, in order to restore the tooth to its original shape and size.
Dental crowns can be made of gold, porcelain or porcelain fused to metal; porcelain crowns are popular because they match the natural color and appearance of your teeth. Dr. Jutric will help you determine which type of dental crown is right to enhance your smile.
Crowns can also be used for a number of other restorative and aesthetic purposes, including to:
Protect a tooth following root canal treatment
Anchor and attach a dental bridge
Cover and complete a dental implant
Enhance the beauty of your smile
Improve a misshapen tooth
Strengthen a tooth that is fractured or weak
Support a large filling when little natural tooth
