A dental crown can cap a tooth that's been damaged by trauma or decay. Drs. Ruth Bailey and Kasey Sliger can evaluate the condition of your tooth to determine if it's the best restorative option. Some patients may benefit from a biomimetic restoration if they have enough healthy tooth structure remaining.View transcript
A dental crown is also known as a cap. It replaces the outer shell of the tooth, and it's made out of a strong, durable material that also helps seal around the tooth and gives you the same function you had with your natural tooth structure. To see if you're a good candidate for a crown, depends upon tooth structure. So if you have more tooth structure to work with, you may be a good candidate for something like a biomimetic restoration instead of a crown, something that's a little more conservative with tooth structure.
