A crown is used to cover a tooth with a large filling or chip and improve both its appearance and function. Crowns are the treatment of choice when a tooth is discolored, broken, or heavily restored with a large filling. Every time a tooth chips or receives a filling the natural tooth structure is weakened, and a natural appearance becomes increasingly difficult to achieve. A crowns purpose is to return the strength and appearance of a natural tooth.
Crowns are different from other types of dental treatment because they cover the entire tooth, from the chewing surface all the way to the gum line. Crowns are cemented over-top of the remaining tooth and replaces all of its surfaces. The new tooth is ready for action!
Crowns can be made from various materials, the most popular being ziconia (a white metal), porcelain or ceramic, or gold. We would be happy to help you pick the right one for you depending on your wants and needs!
