Crowns

A Crown is commonly known as a “Cap” and is used to cover a tooth to protect it and to prevent fracture. This restorative procedure is used when there is an existing, very large restoration (filling) on the tooth, or if the tooth has had root canal therapy (endodontic treatment), making the tooth more brittle. When any of these conditions exist, the tooth is much more susceptible to fracture if a crown is not placed on it.

​Crowns are often made with porcelain bonded to metal, combining aesthetics with strength. Sometimes, a full porcelain crown can be made for an anterior (front) tooth for maximum esthetics. Also, for posterior (back) teeth in a non-esthetic area of the mouth, a full metal crown can be made for maximum strength and minimal tooth reduction.
