A dental crown (or cap) is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and often used to improve a tooth’s appearance. They can be fabricated by our highly skilled local laboratory from a variety of materials including gold, porcelain fused to gold and all porcelain. Dr. Argenziano can help you to determine which restoration is best for your dental needs.

When is a Dental Crown Needed?

Dental crowns are often needed for the following reasons:

  • To protect a tooth that has been weakened by decay and/or a large filling.
  • To restore a tooth that has already fully or partially fractured.
  • To protect a tooth that has had a root canal.
  • To restore misshapened or discolored teeth.
  • To cover a dental implant.
