What are Dental Crowns?
Dental crowns are caps placed over a tooth that has been affected by any number of issues, from discoloration to general weakness. Crowns are meticulously crafted to resemble a real tooth in order to help restore a natural, attractive smile, and they may be made from a variety of materials, including ceramic, porcelain, resin and more. Each type of crown offers its own unique selection of benefits. Once the appropriate type is selected, crowns are cemented with an adhesive. The typical dental crown lasts as long as 15 years, though that lifespan can vary significantly.

Why are Dental Crowns Used?
Dental crowns can be utilized to address all sorts of oral health conditions. Applications may include:

  • Protecting a weak tooth from breaking
  • Protecting a previously damaged or worn tooth from further damage
  • Covering a dental implant
  • Covering a discolored or otherwise cosmetically blemished tooth
  • Delivering additional protection to a tooth with a large filling
  • Protecting a tooth that has received a root canal treatment
  • Attaching a fixed bridge
  • And more…
