A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth. It can be made from different materials, such as high-strength zirconia, porcelain, gold or a combination of those materials. Crowns can function to restore a tooth’s shape, size and strength and to improve its appearance.Depending upon the material chosen, a crown can be fabricated at your same appointment or three to four weeks later in the laboratory. A porcelain crown most often can be designed and made here at our office in one day using our E4D system, saving you time in our office and allowing you to leave with a renewed smile after a single appointment.
Why Is a Dental Crown Needed?
- To add strength to a structurally compromised tooth, such as one that is fractured, or a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy
- To restore a large area of decay on a tooth that cannot be fixed with a dental filling
- To improve the appearance of an existing tooth
- To improve or restore proper biting function
