You might be more familiar with the term “caps” to identify dental crowns. These coverings encase all of a tooth’s surface, restoring it to its original size and shape. Dental crowns protect and strengthen teeth, offering more support and restoration than a simple filling.
Dental crowns are typically made of porcelain in order to match the natural color of teeth. They are fabricated to be a custom-fit, matching the natural size and shape of your teeth. Dental crowns last many years and are an impressive option for tooth restoration. Do you wonder if a dental crown can benefit you?

What do dental crowns involve?
When restoring your teeth with dental crowns, two appointments with your dentist are necessary. During the first consultation, multiple, detailed impressions (or molds) of your teeth are made to create your customized crown.
At the second appointment, your dentist will numb your teeth, remove any decay, and then place the dental crown on your tooth. Some dentists make a short-term crown out of temporary cement at the first appointment. If you have this, it is removed before your new crown is placed.
How Do I Care For My
- Floss carefully
- Brush your teeth twice a day
- Let hot beverages cool down some before drinking
- Try chewing mostly on the side of your mouth without the crown(s)
- Visit your dentist for check-ups regularly
