Crowns (Caps)

Dental crown is a tooth shaped cap that is placed over the tooth surface, to improve its appearance. Dental crown can repair extensively decayed or damaged teeth. Dental crowns may be of gold metals, silver metals, porcelain or combination of porcelain and metal. The damage to the teeth should be repaired by using crowns. Crowns restore the size of shortened teeth, restore a patient’s bite, eliminate sensitivity and improve the aesthetics of the teeth.

Crowns are usually bonded to the tooth with the help of dental cement. A dental crown may be needed to:

  • Protect broken tooth
  • Cover severely discolored teeth
  • Cover an implant
  • Hold a dental bridge in place
  • Restore severely worn teeth
  • Repair broken teeth
  • Cover a tooth with large filling
  • Cover a root canal treated tooth
