If your teeth sustain damage, Dr. Lisa Kirshenbaum and Dr. Thomas Shaw may recommend a dental crown to restore the beauty and functionality of your teeth and smile. Your crown is carefully designed to fit your tooth and smile perfectly, providing you with the long-lasting and aesthetic results you need to once again enjoy your smile.

What are Dental Crowns?

Dental crowns, or caps, are custom-made restorations, fitting snugly over the visible portions of your tooth, fully encasing it to restore the strength, appearance and function of the tooth. Crowns also work to protect your tooth from sustaining any additional damage. This type of treatment is typically recommended for teeth that are cracked, decayed, unevenly shaped or have suffered other damage. Dental crowns may also be used to cap a dental implant post after you have lost a tooth or to complete a root canal treatment and fully restore the treated tooth.

There are many benefits to receiving a dental crown, including:

  • Enhanced Aesthetics: Dental crowns are custom-made to perfectly match the color, size and shape of your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless and beautiful smile.
  • Improved Functionality: Crowns provide excellent stability and strength to weakened teeth, allowing for proper chewing and biting.
  • Long-lasting Durability: Dental crowns are designed to be highly durable and resistant to wear and tear.
  • Protection for Weakened Teeth: If you have a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy or has a large filling, it may be more prone to breakage. Dental crowns offer an extra layer of protection, guarding against further damage and preserving the tooth’s health.
  • Improved Oral Health: Restoring damaged teeth with dental crowns not only enhances your smile, but it also promotes good oral health. By covering and sealing the tooth, the crown prevents bacteria from entering and causing further decay or infection.
