Crowns protect teeth from further decay, or cracking. Teeth that need to be protected due to trauma, decay, cracks, implants, or root canal therapy are good candidates for crowns which are made to look like your natural teeth.

Crowns can be made of solid gold, porcelain fused to a gold foundation, or entirely of porcelain if cosmetics are a concern.

Crowns, or caps, have been used successfully for years, and are a great, long-lasting, restorative option.
