A dental crown, or cap, is a restoration that can be used for a number of purposes, including:

The crown is custom-made to fit over the entire tooth, starting at the gum line, to restore the tooth to its original shape and size. Dental crowns can be made of gold, ceramic, or porcelain fused to metal. Ceramic crowns are popular because they match the natural color and appearance of your teeth. Our dentist will help you determine which type of dental crown is right for your smile.
