Caps and crowns are references to the same restoration. Crowns are the proper name, while caps are how patients sometimes refer to them. They are used to “cap” the top of a natural tooth to protect it or offer an extra layer of strength. Crowns are also placed over dental implants to replace missing teeth.
Dental crowns are available for a variety of situations. Below are just a few times when patients may benefit from their placement:
Most patients can benefit from dental crowns. They are placed over natural teeth in a variety of situations, and are a common restoration used in general and cosmetic dentistry.
The fabrication and placement of dental crowns takes some time to complete. The process starts with an evaluation to determine if it is the best possible solution for a patient. Then, preparations are made with the removal of natural tooth enamel. Impressions are taken and then sent to a laboratory where a ceramist fabricates the crown. Once completed, it is sent to the dentist and the patient returns to have their final restoration bonded into place. In the meantime, patients can have a temporary crown put in place for the interim.
