What are dental crowns and what are they used for?

Dental crowns, also known as caps, are a prosthetic solution that replace a portion or the entirety of a tooth. They restore a natural look to unsightly teeth and proper functionality to teeth that are damaged or broken.

Teeth that have had large cavities or gone through endodontic treatment typically have large amounts of damage, so it’s helpful to protect them with dental crowns. Crowns are permanently fixed to a prepared tooth or tooth implant, and can also be applied as a cosmetic solution to reshape teeth that are rotated or tilted.

Who should get dental crowns?

Dental crowns are ideal for adult patients who:

  • Have teeth that are broken, weakened, or have lost functionality or cosmetic appeal
  • Need to protect and strengthen a tooth after root treatment (endodontic treatment), to prevent any further damage

Dental crowns are also commonly installed in patients with teeth that are too damaged to receive fillings, and in those looking for a cosmetic solution for crooked or tilted teeth.

What does the dental crown installation process look like?

In order to install dental crowns, it’s necessary to first file down the tooth so that the crown can be fitted and fixed upon it properly. The installation of dental crowns is also a key part of the dental implant process, during which a new crown is fixed upon a previously installed implant.
