If you have a severely decayed or cracked tooth, a dental crown might be the right treatment for you.

What are dental crowns?

Think of a dental crown as a tooth-shaped “cap” that protects a weak tooth from breaking, restores an already broken tooth, covers a misshapen tooth or supports a tooth that has already gone through a root canal treatment. The crown encases the tooth and functions as its new surface so you can speak, eat, and smile just like you did before! Crowns can be made from porcelain, resin, ceramic or metal, depending on the position and shape of the tooth and your specific needs.
