Dental crowns can restore teeth that we consider weakened and we no longer believe we can conservatively restore. Conservative treatment usually means restoring one or two teeth and leaving all others un-treated. In these situations, a dental crown can provide strength, protection, and an improved appearance to chipped or weakened teeth.
They are made from a variety of materials, including porcelain fused to metal, all-porcelain, and dental ceramics.
What to Expect
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers a damaged or missing part of your tooth. In most cases, you will only need to visit your dentist to repair the tooth and make a mold of the mouth.. Your dentist will create a crown from porcelain, porcelain-fused to metal, or metal. After the tooth is prepared, a mold is made for the crown using impression material and special equipment. The impression is used by a dental laboratory to make the crown. The finished crown is then cemented on your tooth by your dentist after any adjustments.
