What is a dental crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped covering that encapsulates a natural tooth. Your dentist may recommend a dental crown if you have a brittle, weak, broken, damaged, or decayed tooth. At Antelope Creek Family Dentistry, our skilled and experienced dentists in Lincoln, NE use dental crowns to restore the strength, structure, and function of natural teeth.

Dental crowns can be made of porcelain, resin, ceramics, and metals. One of the benefits of dental crowns is that they don't require special care other than oral hygiene because they're similar to natural teeth in look, feel, and function. 

A dental crown can do the following:

  • Protect a vulnerable or broken tooth 
  • Restore a fractured or worn tooth 
  • Conceal a discolored or misshapen tooth
  • Stabilize an imbalanced bite 
  • Cover a tooth that has had root canal therapy 
  • Top a dental implant
  • Hold a dental bridge in place

Dental crowns are a versatile restoration that can improve and protect your natural smile!
