Caps and Crowns

What Are Dental Crowns?


Dental crowns or “caps” are covers that are placed over a tooth. The crown restores the tooth to its normal shape, size, and function. The crown can make the tooth stronger or improve the way it looks.

Reasons a Crown May Be Needed If:

  • A cavity that is too large for a filling to repair.
  • You have a gap or are missing a tooth and need a bridge.
  • A tooth is cracked, worn down or otherwise weakened
  • Root canal treatment was rendered the crown will protect the restored tooth.
  • If you want to cover a badly shaped or discolored tooth and improve your smile.

What Are Dental Crowns Made Of?


Crowns are made of various materials such as porcelain fused to metal, ceramic, metal alloys, or composite resin. When a crown is made, the material is often colored to blend the color of your teeth.

The material of your crown is determined by many factors, such as:

  • The location and function of the tooth
  • The position of the gum tissue
  • Aesthetic Preference
  • The amount of tooth that shows when you smile
  • The color and shade of tooth

When you visit our dental offices, we will determine which is right for you.

 

      what our patients are saying

      Dr Mantel is a very caring and honest dentist. He took his time in explaining the process of Invisalign to me last year and never pressured me into getting it today I finally went to him to put them on I can’t even tell they are on, best of all neither can anyone else. Thank you Dr David Mantel and staff at Dental Team.
