A crown is a very versatile dental restoration. Crowns, sometimes called caps, can be used for a variety of restorative and aesthetic purposes. The dental crown is custom made to fit over the entire tooth, covering it completely. This restores the tooth to optimal structure, functionality, and health. Dr. Sami Y. Nouhad may suggest a crown in order to:

  • Cover a tooth that is severely stained
  • Improve the functionality and appearance of a misshapen tooth
  • Strengthen a tooth that is weakened or fractured
  • Attach a dental bridge
  • Cover and complete a dental implant
  • Protect a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy
  • Support a large filling when little natural tooth structure remains
