Because everyone deserves to smile! Make your appointment today!

A crown or dental cap is a type of restoration that completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Patients sometimes need a crown when a tooth has a large cavity. Crowns restore a tooth to its normal shape, size, and function. They are a long term solution and are attached with adhesive so they stay secure. 

Crowns are designed to function as a normal tooth would which means you’ll be able to use it to smile or chew without any issues. Once a tooth is restored with a crown you’ll need to take excellent care of it by brushing and flossing your teeth often. Set an appointment now for a dental crown consultation!

What Are Crowns Made From?

We make crowns out of several different materials such as metal alloys, ceramics, porcelain, or composite resin. Many of these materials can be colored to blend in with your natural teeth which often makes a crown unnoticeable. 

Your dentist will recommend which type of crown is best suited for your needs depending on which tooth is being capped. We consider the location, function, position of gum tissue, your preference, how much of the tooth will show, and the color of the tooth. Once your crown is in place it’ll look and function good as new!
