A crown is a cap that is placed over the surface and sides of the tooth to restore its shape, size and functionality.
When might you need a dental crown?
To protect a tooth from future or increased decay and infection
To restore an already broken tooth or one that is severely damaged from decay
To cover or support a tooth that has had a large filling leaving not much of the tooth left
To cover a dental implant
To make a cosmetic modification
Fitting a crown will usually require two visits to the office. One for the impression and the other for the fitting.
