About Dental Crowns (Caps)

A Crown (commonly known as a cap) is a definitive restoration for tooth. This restoration can be used to treat many conditions that a filling will not be sufficient for including fractures, large cavities, and even many aesthetic concerns.

There many different material choices for a crown but porcelain (tooth colored crown) are the most popular. They are very strong and will service you well. Like any material, maintenance is very important and these restorations may eventually need to be replaced. Crowns can be made to match or even correct the size, color, shape and even provide esthetic benefits for your teeth and smile.

Your tooth may need a crown for:

  • Broken or fractured teeth.
  • Cosmetic enhancement.
  • Decayed teeth.
  • Fractured fillings.
  • Large fillings.
  • Tooth has a root canal.

What does getting a crown involve?

A crown procedure usually requires two appointments. At your first crown appointment Dr. Safaei will remove any decay and cavities and prep the tooth for the crown. You will have a functional temporary between your first and second appointment. At your second appointment we will seat the crown. You will be comfortably numb throughout the procedure. It’s that simple!
