What is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth or dental implant, known to help strengthen and protect a tooth’s structure. Crowns are most commonly used to protect damaged or decayed teeth. Dental crowns look and function just like a real tooth. At Mile High, we have different types of crown materials, ranging from porcelain to metal. Our dentist will be sure to recommend the best option for you.
When Do You Need a Crown?
Your dentist may recommend a crown to do the following:
- Restore a damaged tooth.
- Protect a weak tooth from fracturing.
- Replace a large filling when there’s isn’t enough tooth remaining.
- Cover a dental implant.
- Cover a discolored or poorly structured tooth.
