Ceramic Crowns

Dental crown and toothA crown, often called a “cap”, is used to repair many different dental problems, some minor and some more significant.

Dental Crowns can be made from metal or porcelain. Our expert dentist’s can help you choose the type that is most appropriate based on cost, the goal of the procedure and the location and position of the tooth.

Some of the situations in which crowns are used are:

  • To replace a large filling when the surrounding tooth has minimal structure left
  • To strengthen a weaker tooth to prevent cracking or fracturing
  • To cover a stained, crooked or misshaped tooth, providing a more natural look
  • To protect a tooth that has had a root canal
  • To align a crooked tooth
