A crown or cap is a custom-made permanent covering for a tooth. There are many types of materials for crowns including porcelain, porcelain fused to metal and gold crowns.
Crowns solve issues related to: cracked teeth, large broken fillings, large cavities, as well as offer protection for a tooth after it has had root canal treatment. In front teeth, older fillings can both weaken the teeth and look unsightly due to staining or chipping. Porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not.
A crown will look and feel just like your other teeth. Custom color matching and precise adjustments are made so your new crown is a perfect fit!
