What is a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is also referred to as a cap or cover. It’s placed over a tooth to restore it to its natural shape and size. It can improve both the appearance and the function of your tooth.

Crowns are meant to look natural and blend in with your natural teeth. Our dentist will find the right material for the crown to ensure it looks as natural as possible. Crowns are made from a variety of materials, including stainless steel, porcelain fused to metal, resin, or ceramic.

What Are Crowns Used for?

There are several reasons you may get a crown at some point in your life, and this is why so many people have them. Our dentist, Dr. Tim Anastassatos, DMD, may recommend dental crowns for the following reasons:

  • Crowns can prevent weak teeth from breaking.
  • Crowns can restore broken teeth.
  • Crowns can strengthen teeth with large fillings.
