What is a Crown?

Posted on: October 2nd, 2015 by The DC Dentist

A crown is a tooth shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth. A crown can be needed for many reasons, but that can’t be determined unless your dentist recommends it. A crown can help with the following:

-restore tooth structure

-tooth shape or size

-strengthen your tooth

-tooth appearance

A dental crown can be needed to protect a weak tooth, or cracked tooth. It can also help to keep a dental bridge in place. Dental crowns are also used to cover dental implants or simply for cosmetic reasons. Whichever the case a crown can resort to helping you feel great about your smile again.

Call us for a consultation to see if what’s missing from your smile can be resolved with a crown.
