For instance, you may wonder why we have suggested this particular restorative treatment. You may also have a vague understanding of crowns but wish you had a more thorough knowledge of what to expect. Fortunately, you are in luck. In addition to offering beautiful crowns to improve the beauty, function, and health of your smile, we have the answers you’re looking for:

Questions About Crowns

Question: Why do people call crowns “caps?”

Answer: A crown is a hollow, artificial tooth. Because of its shape and because it fits over your natural tooth, people often think of them as hats or “caps” because they cap the top of your tooth.

Question: Why did you suggest a dental crown?

Answer: This restorative solution provides significant support and protection to your tooth for a variety of reasons, which may include the following:

  • Your tooth has suffered damage too serious for cosmetic treatment – we may improve the appearance of your tooth with a crown.
  • Your tooth has suffered a very large cavity – though we have filled the cavity, your tooth remains vulnerable to breakage. A crown will protect your tooth.
  • You have broken or severely injured your tooth. While it does not require an extraction, it can no longer remain in place on its own without additional support.
  • You have undergone root canal treatment to restore a tooth after an infection. A crown will prevent future bacterial problems and will protect the remaining tooth.

Question: What types of crowns do you offer?

Answer: We most often offer porcelain crowns because they provide a natural, beautiful finish and are also known for their durability. We will color-match the crown to your surrounding smile for a seamless appearance.
