What are Crowns?

Crowns are a type of dental restoration that when cemented into place, fully cover the portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. A crown or cap protects the underlying tooth. You may need a crown because of:

dental crown

  • Extensive tooth decay
  • Large metal or tooth-colored fillings that weaken the remaining tooth
  • Broken or cracked teeth
  • A tooth that has had root canal therapy
  • A misaligned or misshaped tooth
  • Teeth that have large fillings that are breaking down and cannot be refilled

Sometimes a crown is not the optimum solution and other dental procedures such as porcelain veneers or implants are a better choice.

If you think you may need a crown, Dr. Sushko will examine your teeth fully and explain all of your options to you so that you can make a fully informed choice.
