At some point in your life, you may need dental crowns. There are many different reasons that our dentists use crowns, and they are used every day. Crowns are sometimes referred to as “caps.” They cover existing teeth and can improve the shape, size, appearance, and strength of the tooth.

What Material Are Crowns Made of?
Crowns are usually made out of one of the following materials:
- Metal alloys
- Composite resin
- Porcelain fused to metal
Our dentists will use the material that best matches the natural color of your teeth. We also want the crown to fit naturally, so our dentists will keep that in mind when selecting a material. In some cases, you may be able to request a specific material, but it depends on the situation.
How Do Dentists Use Crowns?
Our dentists use crowns for many different reasons, but we use them every day at our office. Common dental procedures require crowns. Crowns are used in the following situations:
- To protect any weak, breaking, or cracked teeth
- To restore worn-down teeth
- To support teeth with fillings
- To support dental bridges
- To improve misshapen or discolored teeth
Are Crowns Durable?
Crowns can last for up to 15 years, but their longevity varies from person to person. Regular wear and tear can begin to wear down your crowns. If you bite your fingernails and clench your teeth, your crowns may become more worn down.
Talk to our dentists if you are concerned about the longevity of your crowns. We may be able to make some suggestions to ensure your crowns remain in great shape.
