What are Dental Crowns?

dental crownDental Crowns cover and protect damaged teeth. Crowns can help strengthen the damaged tooth, as well as improve its function for chewing, physical appearance, and maintain proper chewing occlusion with the rest of the teeth. Porcelain crowns are color matched to the existing teeth for improved aesthetics. Metallic gold alloy crowns can be used in areas that are not aesthetic concerns. Dental Crowns can be made from several materials such as porcelain, porcelain fused to a metal alloy,  gold alloy, composite resin and others.

 

Why Do I Need a Dental Crown?

Dr. Bogan may recommend crowns for several different scenarios such as:

  • Rebuilding a broken, cracking or fractured tooth
  • Esthetic concerns
  • Protect  a root canal treated tooth from breakage
  • Replace a filling where there is too little tooth remaining to do a new filling.
