What is a crown?

A crown is a type of dental restoration used when a filling, inlay, or onlay will not sufficiently restore the tooth. The crown completely encases the damaged or decayed tooth, improving your smile’s health, functionality, and appearance. Dental crowns can be used for a variety of cosmetic and restorative purposes, and they can be created from a number of materials based on your individual needs and preferences. At Red Bird Family Dental, we offer porcelain crowns for our patients who are looking for a natural-looking restoration option.

Do I need a crown?

Our dentists, Drs. Kim, Han, Cook, and Cho, may recommend a crown for a number of purposes. A dental crown can be used to:

  • Repair a severely damaged or decayed tooth
  • Protect a tooth following root canal therapy
  • Enhance the appearance of a severely stained or darkened tooth
  • Support a large filling when little tooth structure remains
  • Improve the appearance and function of an irregularly shaped tooth
  • Strengthen a tooth that is fractured or weakened
