  • Restore a tooth that is significantly decayed or damaged.
  • Protect a tooth after a root canal treatment.
  • Improve the appearance of a discolored or poorly shaped tooth.
  • Anchor a dental bridge or cover a dental implant.

What Materials Are Used for Dental Crowns?

Crowns can be made from various materials, each offering unique benefits:

  • Porcelain or ceramic crowns for a natural appearance.
  • Gold and metal alloys for durability and strength.
  • Porcelain fused to metal, combining strength with a natural look.

What Is the Process for Getting a Dental Crown?

The process typically involves:

  • Preparing the tooth by removing any decay and shaping it for the crown.
  • Taking an impression of the tooth for a custom fit.
  • Placing a temporary crown while the permanent one is being made.
  • Once ready, the permanent crown is adjusted for fit and comfort, then cemented in place.
