A dental crown, also known as a “cap”, is a covering made to fit over a tooth that has been damaged by trauma or decay.  Crowns can also be used to cover and protect your natural teeth, especially when the tooth is too worn down, chipped or cracked.  We may also recommend a crown when a large filling has worn out.  Whatever the reason, crowns are a great way to maintain the strength of your teeth and improve the appearance of your smile.

Benefits to Crowns:

  • they protect your natural tooth
  • they look natural as they are matched to the color and size of your tooth

 

What to do in case of an Emergency

  • If your crown falls off, try to put it back in place with toothpaste to act as an adhesive
  • Make an appointment with your dentist right away and bring the crown with you to your appointment

Crowns vs. Veneers

  • A veneer only covers the front part of the tooth, while a crown encases an entire tooth.
