What is a crown?

A crown is a dental restoration that can be used for a number of purposes. One of the most common uses of a dental crown is to restore a tooth that is significantly damaged or decayed. The crown is custom made to fit over the tooth, entirely covering it beginning at the gums. Your dental crown will be made to match the shape and size of your natural tooth.

Do I need a crown?

A custom dental crown can effectively restore the health and function of your smile. Our friendly dentists, Dr. Huber, Dr. Pelkey and Dr. Overmyer, may suggest a crown to:

  • Repair a severely decayed or damaged tooth
  • Attach a dental bridge
  • Protect a tooth after root canal therapy
  • Enhance the beauty of your smile
  • Strengthen a fractured or weakened tooth
