What are dental crowns?

Dental crowns, also known as “caps,” preserve the functionality of damaged teeth. Dental crowns may be used to protect a cracked tooth, restore the functionality of a tooth with excessive decay or replace a pre-existing crown.

What is the Procedure?

During the dental crown procedure, your dentist prepares the tooth and makes a molded impression of the tooth to send to a dental laboratory. A fitted, temporary crown is created during this visit to temporarily protect the tooth while the final restoration is being made in the dental laboratory. Once completed, the tooth crown is cemented at a later visit.
