A crown is a type of dental restoration that is designed to match the shape, size, and appearance of your natural tooth. A dental crown is used to restore a significantly damaged or decayed tooth by entirely encasing the tooth, beginning at the gum line. In addition to restoring damaged or decayed teeth, dental crowns can be utilized to:

  • Complete a dental implant
  • Strengthen a weakened or fractured tooth
  • Support a tooth with a large dental filling
  • Protect a tooth following root canal therapy
  • Anchor a dental bridge
  • Enhance the beauty of your smile
  • Improve the function and appearance of an irregularly shaped tooth

Crowns are often created from tooth-colored materials, such as porcelain, for a natural-looking, long-lasting restoration. Dental crowns can also be created from gold or porcelain fused with metal. While some sources argue that gold crowns are more durable than porcelain, gold lacks the aesthetic benefits of porcelain. Your experienced dentist, Dr. Romisher, will help you determine which type of crown best fits your specific needs.
