Caps Or Crowns


A crown (or cap) is a dental restoration that covers the entire visible surface of an affected tooth. If a tooth is damaged but not lost, a crown can be used to restore its shape, appearance and function.

A tooth that has been fixed with a crown looks and works very much like a natural tooth. Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain are the most popular because they best resemble your natural teeth to provide a beautiful long-lasting smile.

Dentists at Hamilton Family Dentistry may recommend a crown for the following reasons:

  • To repair broken or fractured teeth.

  • For cosmetic enhancement.

  • To restore decayed teeth.

  • To repair fractured fillings.
