A crown, otherwise known as a “cap” can return structure, strength, and function to a tooth with extensive decay or damage or a tooth with a large failing filling. It involves removing enough structure around a tooth to allow for either a full metal (gold), porcelain pressed (fused) to metal, or all-porcelain crown to fit over it. This allows the tooth structure underneath to stay protected.
In cases where the shade of your smile needs to be maintained, Our in-office color-matching system allows us to find the right shade of porcelain to blend with your natural tooth color. Crowns when properly maintained can be extremely durable and long lasting.
