At Steele Dentistry, our dentists, Dr. Kate Steele and Dr. Lisa Schaffer, may recommend a dental crown to repair a severely damaged tooth, or to correct problems with a tooth’s color size or shape. To schedule an appointment, or simply to learn more about dental crowns, please call our office at 303-278-3353.
A dental crown, sometimes called a cap, is extremely useful in restorative dentistry. They cover the entire tooth down the gum line. And can be made of gold, porcelain, or a fusion of metal and porcelain. Porcelain crowns have an advantage in that they blend in with the rest of your smile. Our doctors will examine your tooth to determine which crown will work best for you.
A crown can be used to address many issues. The dentist may suggest using a crown for a number of reasons including:
- Covering a stain on a tooth
- Restoring a tooth to its proper shape or size
- Anchoring a dental bridge
- Covering a dental implant
- Strengthening or supporting a tooth damaged by trauma or decay
- Enhancing your smile.
