When a tooth has been compromised due to severe damage or decay, a crown may be necessary to restore the structure and function of the tooth. The latest advances in technology are used to create a custom-fit dental crown, or “cap.” The cap is fitted to the shape and size of your tooth, and matched to the specific color of your surrounding teeth to blend in with your smile.
Sometimes, dental cavities are too big for a standard filling and a crown is needed. The crown is placed over the tooth structure to strengthen it and restore the appearance of the natural tooth. Crowns offer both functional and cosmetic benefits.
