Is a damaged tooth putting a damper on your day? It’s possible that you might need a dental crown (sometimes referred to as a dental cap) to get it back to its full functionality and an attractive appearance. At Paris Mountain Dental, we can fit you with a custom, natural-looking crown to restore your smile.

Why Would I Need a Tooth Crown?

We recommend getting a dental crown for a number of different reasons since they can improve a tooth’s strength as well as its appearance. Here are some of the main situations that might call for a tooth crown:

  • You have a cavity that’s too large for a filling to restore.
  • You have a broken tooth.
  • You have a severely worn down tooth.
  • You have a tooth that’s discolored or misshaped.
  • You just have root canal therapy and need to protect the treated tooth.
  • You need to get a dental implant or dental bridge.

Types of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns can be made from a variety of materials. The most common are porcelain, ceramic, and metal alloy. Each type of material offers its own benefits, and we’ll sit down to determine the best option for you based on your tooth’s condition, your tooth’s position, and your budget.
