Crown & Bridges

When & Why do I need a Crown?

A crown is a cover or “cap” your dentist can put over a tooth. The crown restores the tooth to its normal shape, size, and function. A crown can make the tooth stronger or improve the way it looks.

Reasons you may need a crown:
  • You have a cavity that is too large for a filling
  • You have a tooth that is cracked, worn down, or otherwise weakened
  • You have had root canal treatment — the crown will protect the restored tooth
  • You want to cover a discolored or badly shaped tooth and improve your smile

What is your crown made from?

Crowns are made from several types of materials. Metal alloys, ceramics, porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or composite resin may be used. When a crown is made, the material often is colored to blend in with your natural teeth.
Your dentist wants your crown to look natural and fit comfortably in your mouth. To decide which material to use for your crown, your dentist will consider many factors, such as:
  • the tooth’s location and function
  • the position of the gum tissue
  • your preference
  • the amount of tooth that shows when you smile
  • the color or shade of the tooth
