Crowns

Crowns Image

A crown fits over and replaces the entire part of a decayed tooth above the gum line. It encases the tooth and becomes the tooth's new outer surface.

You will typically need two or more visits to our office to repair a tooth needing a crown. In certain cases a CEREC crown can be done in our office, usually in a single visit.

A crown is recommended for several reasons:

  • To treat teeth that have broken or decayed so much that they cannot be repaired with a filling
  • To repair a leaking, cracked or defective filling
  • To improve how a tooth looks
  • To strengthen and cover a tooth after root canal treatment

In all of these cases a crown should feel and look just like a healthy tooth.
