What is a crown?

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps for your teeth that restore the shape, size, strength, and appearance of teeth. Crowns are placed over the teeth and cemented into place to permanently restore your teeth.

Do I need a crown?

Dental crowns are a great option for remedying a number of dental problems. Your dentist, Dr. Glenn Edens, might advise that a dental crown is the best option for any of the following situations:

  • Restoring a tooth after a root canal
  • Restoring a dental implant
  • Anchoring a dental bridge
  • Protecting and strengthening a weak tooth
  • Covering a severely discolored or stained tooth
