A crown, also called a cap, is a custom-made restoration that repairs and strengthens a tooth that has been severely damaged or is weakened. Made of porcelain or gold (based on patient preference), a crown completely covers the tooth.
A crown is used to:
- Restore a tooth that has fractured
- Fill a large cavity
- Replace an old filling that has failed
- Restore a tooth following root canal therapy
- Enhance the appearance of a tooth that is discolored or misshapen
