The Purpose of Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are used as part of the tooth restoration process from teeth that have been decayed or cracked. Dental crowns, also known as caps, help preserve the functionality of damaged teeth. Dental crowns come in a wide variety of materials and can help improve aesthetics in addition to functionality. Our doctors at Southern Cross Dental can discuss any questions or concerns regarding the dental crown process.

There are several materials that our doctor may suggest, such as porcelain and ceramic.  A crown can help strengthen a tooth with a large filling when there isn’t enough tooth remaining to hold a filling. Crowns can also be used to attach dental bridges when those are needed. Additionally, a crown can protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that’s already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped.

If you wish to discuss dental crowns, please give us a call. To learn about the services we provide at our practice, visit for more information. To schedule an appointment with one of our doctors at Southern Cross Dental in Colorado Springs, CO, call 719-471-1717.
