Teeth are often restored using silver or composite fillings. However, when too much of a tooth's structure is compromised to support a filling, a crown or "cap" may be needed. A crown may be needed to:

  • Restore a tooth when it is unable to support a large filling
  • Attach bridges
  • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing or restore fractured teeth
  • Cover discolored teeth
  • Cover dental implants

A crown essentially covers a tooth to restore it to its natural shape and size. This permanent covering fits over your original tooth to strengthen or improve the appearance of the tooth. Fitting a crown generally requires at least two visits to the dentist's office, but at Aadland Dental we use the latest CAD/CAM technology to mill the crown in office so that you leave the same day with your custom tooth colored crown.
