A lot of people have questions about crowns and some people call them “caps” but caps and crowns are pretty much the same thing.

Crowns can be used to strengthen or restore a weak tooth, one that might have a large filling or a large cavity.  They can also be used to create a more aesthetic or beautiful tooth of used on cosmetic cases.
So, if you have a tooth that’s a weak tooth or one with a large filling or something like that a crown is a great way to strengthen it and give it a longer lasting, more durable restoration.

If you have a missing tooth, then you can crown a tooth on either side and splint it in and you can have what’s called a “bridge” and actually have a permanent replacement for a missing tooth.

There are many types of crowns.  The most common are what are called “porcelain to metal” where there is porcelain on top and metal underneath.  The newer crowns will be all ceramic.  A lot of them will either be purely ceramic or  they will have porcelain actually on top of the ceramics.  These can be modified to look as beautiful as veneers and look very, very natural.  We use a lot of these on the anterior on some really challenging cosmetic cases to give that beautiful smile.
