What is a crown?

A crown is a dental restoration that can be used to repair a tooth that has suffered from significant decay or damage. The dental crown is designed to entirely encase the damaged tooth, beginning at the gum line, to restore the tooth to its original size, appearance, and shape. Each dental crown is custom fabricated to match the appearance of your natural teeth and restore your smile’s health and function.

Do I need a crown?

Dr. Steven A. Beuligmann may recommend a dental crown to:

  • Restore a seriously damaged or decayed tooth
  • Strengthen a tooth that is fractured
  • Protect a tooth after root canal therapy
  • Complete a dental implant
  • Attach and anchor a dental bridge
  • Enhance the beauty of your smile
