Dental Crowns

FacebookTwitterLinkedInGoogle+PinterestShare

Dental crowns are placed on a tooth to increase the lifespan of a tooth.

Dental crowns are cemented onto a prepared tooth. The tooth is prepared by reducing all the surfaces of the tooth by an exact amount thereby making the tooth smaller. An impression is taken of the prepared tooth and a dental lab fabricates cap (dental crown) that encompasses the tooth and returns the tooth to its original size and shape.

Dental crowns are placed on teeth that have had extensive fillings; have been root canal treated; have exhibited signs of fractures or have an increased risk of fracture.

Dental crowns can preserve the tooth and prevent fractures that may result in the tooth being unrestorable and therefore requiring extraction.
