What is a dental crown?

A dental crown, sometimes referred to as a cap, is just that, it is a hard, durable cap that has been customized to look and feel just like your natural tooth. We match the color to your neighboring teeth, and the grooves to ensure that your bite is correct. A dental crown should appear as if there never was a problem.


One of the most common reasons for the placement of a crown is to provide strength to a tooth. There can be several reasons a tooth has lost its strength. It can be:
•  Dental crowns can provide strength to a tooth that has been cracked or broken.
•  We may place a crown to extend its life, and stop possible breakage, following a root canal procedure.
•  A dental crown can cover a tooth that has been severely damaged from bruxism, which is the clenching or grinding of teeth while you sleep. This condition can cause multiple hairline cracks or flatten your teeth.

Part of the strength they add is in the material used. Crowns are available in multiple materials, including porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, gold, and zirconia. Samuel Seo, DMDs will review these materials available and help you decide which material is best for you based the location of the crown and your finances.


Dental crowns restore function for your tooth. Too often we have a patient who has just grown accustomed to chewing on the other side of their mouth. We want to change that. We want you to eat comfortably and normally, using both sides. Your teeth should be in tact, not causing you pain, and functional. Samuel Seo, DMDs can help you.


Are you hiding your smile? Have you learned to smile without showing your teeth because you don’t like them? We can help you achieve the look that will make you want to smile. Dental crowns are so natural looking that no one should ever be able to tell that they are there. We shade your crowns to match the teeth that surrounds them, helping them blend and hide in your mouth. We know that you will love the way they look.

We are happy to answer all of your questions about dental crowns. Samuel Seo, DMDs prides himself on staying up to date on the latest new, tips, and information in dentistry, including crowns. For more information, contact us at (503) 928-5903
