Dental crowns are often recommended by our dentists and team when a tooth is broken, cracked or too badly decayed to be properly restored with a filling. Crowns are also often needed for a tooth that has had a root canal treatment and are used to complete a dental implant restoration.

What Are Crowns Made Of?

Your dental crown can be made entirely of gold or porcelain fused to gold for strength and beauty. Like many aspects of dentistry, thanks to new technology, crowns can be made entirely from high-strength ceramic and solid porcelain for beautiful cosmetic results. During your dental exam, Dr. Franziska Dutton and Dr. Daniel Cohen will talk with you about which kind of crown best fits your smile and lifestyle needs.

You May Need a Crown If:

  • You have extensive decay or damage to a tooth
  • You have had a root canal
  • You have a tooth that has more filling than actual tooth structure
  • Finishing off a dental implant
  • Adjacent teeth will need crowns to support a bridge

A new crown will not only increase your overall health and give you confidence in your smile. With proper home care your crown will last for years to come.
