Dental Crowns

Overland Park Dentist

Over time, teeth begin to weaken. This leaves them more susceptible to problems such as decay, cracks or discoloration. A dental crown can renew the appearance and function of a tooth. 

Dental crowns can: 

  1. Protect a weak tooth from breaking 
  2. Hold a cracked tooth together 
  3. Cover and support a damaged or decayed tooth 
  4. Cover a severely discolored tooth 
  5. Restore a broken or severely worn tooth 

Also, dental crowns are often used in conjunction with root canal therapy, dental implants or as an anchor for a bridge.

Crowns are typically made from porcelain to provide both strength and a natural appearance. Once treatment is complete, continue routine brushing and flossing. Keep regular office visits to help your crown last many years.
