Dental Crowns
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth - covering the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and/or to improve its appearance. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

Why Is a Dental Crown Needed?

A dental crown may be needed in the following situations:

  • To protect a weak tooth (for instance, from decay) from breaking or to hold together parts of a cracked tooth
  • To restore an already broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
  • To cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't a lot of tooth left
  • To hold a dental bridge in place
  • To cover misshaped or severely discolored teeth
  • To cover a dental implant

How Dental Crowns Work

While inlays and onlays cover the chewing surface of the tooth, and fillings fill in the empty interior space of the tooth, dental crowns completely cover every visible part of the tooth – which is why they are sometimes referred to as "caps." A part of your tooth remains but is essentially "rebuilt" to resemble the tooth at its exterior best.

While a porcelain crown can certainly improve the look of a tooth, it is recommended only in conjunction with prior repair of the tooth – not simply for cosmetic purposes. This is because in order to properly fit a crown, a large part of the tooth must be shaved down – which can be necessary in cases of broken or weak teeth, but can be damaging to otherwise healthy teeth.

Because of this, the recommendation of a crown is most likely due to the fact that lesser replacement techniques will not protect your tooth properly.
