Dental Crowns

If your tooth has been compromised by the following conditions you may need a crown:

  • Large fillings and lack of original structure
  • Extensive decay
  • A broken or cracked tooth
  • A tooth that needs or has an existing root canal

A crown, commonly referred to as a cap, surrounds and protects the tooth preventing it from irreversible damage that would otherwise require it to be removed. The benefits of crowns are numerous: they strengthen the tooth, restore the cosmetic beauty of the tooth and prevent the loss of the tooth.

Crowns are made of different materials depending on where they will be placed in the mouth and what they are being used for. Dr. Santilli will decide the best material for each individual case and work with every patient closely to determine the correct course of action.

A crown is considered a permanent solution and if taken care of properly, should last a lifetime. Attending regular dental appointments is important to keeping your crowns in the best shape possible.
