Dental crowns, also called caps, are a type of tooth restoration designed to repair several different types of problems. A crown helps protect a tooth and restores function, health, and esthetics. Different materials are used for crowns, including porcelain, metal, or a combination of both. Porcelain crowns are the most esthetic option. This type of crown is matched to your other teeth and is virtually indistinguishable. Great care is taken by our dentists to ensure your new crown blends and functions harmoniously with the rest of your teeth.
