Crowns and Caps

Offering Draper, Utah Dental Patients Crowns and Caps

As a full service dental office, Oak Hollow Dentistry offers our dental patients a variety of oral care procedures and services. While some of the most common are those related to regular cleanings and fillings, another one of these services our patients appreciate most involves crowns and caps.

What Is a Dental Crown or Cap?

A dental crown, also sometimes called a cap, is a tooth-shaped cover that is cemented over an existing tooth (which has been reshaped to better fit the crown), increasing the original tooth’s strength and improving its appearance.

Crowns can be made of multiple different materials, some of which include ceramic, porcelain, gold, or resin. Additionally, each one is customized to the exact area it will be placed, providing our Draper, Utah patients a healthy bite and natural looking smile.

When Might a Crown Be Necessary?

What are some reasons you might need a crown or cap? One is if your existing tooth is weak and at risk of breaking or cracking, or is already damaged in one of these ways. A crown may also be necessary if your tooth has a large filling and, therefore, is in need of more support.

If you get a bridge due to having one or more missing teeth, crowns are also used to hold each side of the bridge in place. This provides a higher level of support for the structure that is designed to fill the open space.

What Can I Expect When Getting a Crown?

When you come into our dental office to get a crown, the first thing we will do is numb the area around the existing tooth. Next, we will shape the surface of that tooth to remove any unhealthy areas, as well as to better fit the new crown.

Once this is complete, we will then take an impression of the newly shaped tooth, ensuring that your new crown will fit securely. This also increases the ability of the crown to look and feel just like a natural tooth.
