A dental crown is a cap that is placed over a tooth. These caps are shaped to the individual tooth. It is used to regain the general appearance of the tooth, including shape, size and function. The crowns when cemented into place fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth.
The crown fits snugly up to the gum line. Crowns are used when a tooth is broken or cracked to the point where a filling isn’t an option, or as a cosmetic solution to broken, oddly shaped, or decayed teeth.
William Rice, DDS, has years of experiencing putting dental crowns over patients’ teeth. The crown is placed in the office following a root canal or large filling. It may also be placed when a dental bridge is being put in. It follows the placement of a temporary crown after the initial procedure. Dr. Rice ensures that the crown is the proper size and color for your teeth before placing.
