A crown is a restoration used to restore the shape, size, and color of a damaged tooth. A crown, or dental cap, entirely covers a tooth to strengthen it, restore structure, and improve appearance. Your Lenexa and Kansas City dentist, Dr. Berkvam, may recommend a dental crown in order to:
- Protect against fracturing
- Restore an already fractured tooth
- Attach a bridge
- Support a large filling when little original tooth structure remains
- Follow up root canal therapy
- Cover a dental implant
Crowns are often created from materials that are both aesthetic and long-lasting, such as composite resin and porcelain. To learn more about how a dental crown can improve the function, health, and beauty of your smile, schedule an appointment to visit us at Smiles of Kansas City Dental Center.
