Dental crowns, also commonly called caps, are a prosthetic used to cover and protect damaged teeth in situations where a filling will not suffice. At Premier Dental, Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we use the latest dental technologies in-house to give you fast, accurate custom Clear Lake dental crowns!
When Are Dental Caps Needed?
A dental cap may be called for in many different situations. Here are a few of the most common reasons:
- Repair a broken or severely worn down tooth.
- Cover a tooth with a large filling that doesn’t have much tooth structure remaining.
- Protect weak teeth from breaking.
- Hold together a cracked tooth.
- Cover misshapen or discolored teeth.
- Reinforce a tooth that has been treated with root canal.
- Provide an anchor for a dental bridge.
In some cases, a patient may not need a new dental crown, but a replacement. Dental crowns replacements may be called for old caps that were placed many years ago don’t fit as well as they used to. Sometimes, patients seek to replace older crowns made out of metal for aesthetic reasons.
