Dental Crowns & Caps
A crown, or "cap," is used when a tooth breaks, requires root canal treatment or decay becomes too extensive to repair with a composite filling. Crowns provide extra strength and support to a tooth that may otherwise fracture while being used for typical functions such as eating and chewing. Indeed, many teeth requiring crowns have had large fillings for years, creating stresses that ultimately led to the fracture of the small amount of remaining natural tooth. At Elmwood Dental Group, we utilize the most advanced technology available in the dental field today. Our doctors have the ability to conservatively prepare your tooth for that new crown, and digitally impress and design your crown from the strongest, most esthetic materials known – all within our office.
