A dental crown (sometimes called a “tooth cap” by our patients) is used to restore a badly decayed or damaged tooth.
A dental crown is not only able to restore a fragile tooth, but can help improve the appearance of your smile. For example, a front tooth crown can repair a fractured or discolored tooth.
The dental crown procedure takes two visits to our office. During your first appointment, our dentist will remove enough enamel from the receiving tooth so the dental crown won’t make your tooth look large or bulky.

Next, he will take impressions of your teeth to send to the lab where your tooth crown will be made. In the meantime, your dentist will give you a temporary crown until it can be replaced by the permanent tooth restoration.
When you return for your second appointment, our dentist will make sure that your porcelain crown is the right size, shape, and color. That way, your dental crown will match the rest of your smile and look natural. Given proper care, your crown should withstand years of wear and tear.
Dental crowns help restore shape, size and strength!
