Crowns restore teeth that are too damaged to be filled, but they can also fix cosmetic problems like discoloration.
Dental crowns are a replacement tooth option that maximizes the strength and durability of the remaining tooth structure. Crowns, also known as tooth caps, protect and cover the entire tooth, providing structural stability. From gold and silver to porcelain and ceramic, patients can choose the crowns that work best for them.
- Dental crowns are commonly needed when a cusp or corner breaks off a tooth.
- They are also a good choice to fix a tooth with biting pressure pain or visible fracture lines.
- The caps can be used to change the shape and color of a tooth, especially in the front of the mouth.
- Your dentist can break down the many colors, shapes, materials and sizes so that your crowns are perfect for your unique mouth.
