A dental crown, also sometimes called a cap, is a perfectly fitted restoration that repairs and strengthens a tooth that has fractured, has a large cavity, an old filling that has failed, or has had root canal therapy. Unlike an inlay or onlay, a crown completely covers the tooth. Crowns can also be used for cosmetic purposes, enhancing the appearance of a tooth that is discolored or misshapen. If your teeth have been badly damaged or need structural integrity and support, dental crowns can be an effective treatment option. Our crowns are shaped and colored like a natural tooth to restore strength and eliminate discomfort. As always all of these restorations are done with the same careful planning and design to give you superior results.
