A crown, sometimes referred to as a “cap” is a restoration that is cemented onto your tooth. The crown restores the tooth to its normal shape, size, and function. A crown can make the tooth stronger as well as improve the esthetics. Some reasons your dentist may recommend a crown:
- · There is a cavity that is too large for just filling
- · Your tooth is cracked, worn down, or fractured
- · Your tooth has had root canal treatment
- · You want to improve your smile by covering up teeth that may be discolored or chipped
We also use a 3-D scanner to communicate with the lab so there is no longer a need for gooey impression materials!
