Teeth are durable, but they can become damaged and require restorative dentistry. A damaged tooth is often weakened and may have lost a substantial part of its original structure. A dental crown restores a damaged tooth, covering or “capping” the tooth entirely down to the gum line so none of the original tooth is visible.

Teeth crowns are durable and long-lasting, and we take extensive care to ensure our crowns look natural and lifelike. Modern dental materials closely replicate the look and feel of natural teeth. We can ensure they look exactly like real teeth and sometimes even better than the original.

When Should I Consider a Dental Crown?
We may recommend a dental crown if you have any of the following problems:

  • Badly decayed teeth that cannot be restored with an ordinary filling
  • A tooth that has lost much of its original structure, perhaps due to an accident
  • A misshapen tooth or a tooth that is too small and looks unnatural
  • One or more missing teeth as crowns provide support for a dental bridge
  • Severely stained or chipped teeth
  • A tooth that has received root canal therapy
  • A tooth with hairline cracks in the chewing surface as these cracks can open up when you chew, causing pain and discomfort
  • Teeth that are severely worn, perhaps because of clenching and grinding, a habit called bruxism

We can soon assess the condition of your teeth during your regular dental exam to determine if you require a crown. If you do, we can discuss the various types of crowns available, including the pros and cons of each and, of course, the costs.

What Are the Different Types of Dental Crowns?
There are several types of crowns available, and your choice may depend on the tooth’s location in your mouth, your budget, and your treatment goals. Options include:

  • Gold crowns
  • Porcelain fused to metal crowns
  • All-ceramic crowns that are entirely metal-free
  • Zirconia crowns
