A crown is a tooth shaped “cap” that is custom made to cover and protect the tooth, restore its strength, and to improve its appearance. It is cemented over top of the natural tooth, fully encasing it above the gumline. The crown is made of porcelain and the color will be matched to the patient’s existing teeth to ensure a very natural appearance.
There are number of reasons that it may be needed. A tooth that is severely broken, or that has previously undergone root canal treatment will most likely need to have a crown placed to ensure its viability.
Dentists recommend regular dental hygiene with routine check-ups to maintain optimal oral health. Dr Casey is a general dentist with a focus on family dentistry.
