Also known as a cap, a crown is a custom-made artificial restoration that permanently covers your tooth. They are often made of porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or full gold.
When you have chipped or cracked teeth, a crown will be placed over your tooth to visibly and physically revitalize your smile. Getting a crown when you need one will restore and often completely save your tooth’s shape, size and overall strength.
While there are different types of crowns, most of our patients choose a porcelain finished crown because of its ability to blend right in with their existing smile.
Crowns act as solutions for: decay, cracks, and discoloration.
