Crowns are used to restore and enhance teeth that are badly damaged, cracked or discolored. A crown, also referred to as a cap, not only strengthens a tooth, but it can dramatically improve a tooth's appearance, shape and alignment.
Crowns may be used to:
Replace a large filling when there is little tooth structure remaining a weak tooth from fracturing
Restore a fractured tooth
Attach a bridge
Cover a dental implant
Cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth
Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment
All ceramic crowns are now highly translucent, so they look very natural. Since they have no metal, they eliminate the characteristic dark line seen at the gumline of many old crowns. New high strength porcelains make it possible to use all ceramic crowns not only on front teeth but most back teeth as well.
