If a tooth is significantly damaged, our dentists may recommend a restoration called a crown. A dental crown, sometimes referred to as a cap, entirely covers the tooth in order to improve its strength, health, and function. Crowns can also be used for aesthetic purposes, enhancing a tooth that is damaged or flawed. Dr. Trebisovsky and Dr. Waite may recommend a crown to:

  • Enhance a tooth that is severely stained or discolored
  • Cover and complete a dental implant
  • Attach a dental bridge
  • Protect a tooth after root canal therapy (endodontic treatment)
  • Improve the look and function of a misshapen tooth
  • Restore a seriously damaged or decayed tooth
  • Strengthen a fractured or otherwise weakened tooth
  • Support a large filling when little natural tooth structure remains

Dental crowns are very versatile. Each crown is custom made to precisely fit your smile, providing a restoration that is comfortable, lasting, and aesthetic. While dental crowns can be made from a number of materials, including gold and porcelain fused to metal, our dentists may recommend an all-porcelain dental crown in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, for a natural-looking effect.
