Crowns (Caps)

Available treatments at
Edgewater Dental Associates

When a tooth is fractured, has a large, old filling, or is severely damaged by decay, your dentist may recommend the placement of a crown, or cap. Crowns strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure and can improve the appearance of your smile. Types of crowns include the full porcelain crown, the porcelain-fused-to-metal crown, and the all-metal crown.


Fitting a crown requires at least two visits to the dentist’s office. Initially, the dentist removes decay and shapes the tooth crowns step 1
